For a traditional education on the cultural history of Vanuatu, Ekasup Village tours allow the opportunity for both children and elders to learn about how the ancestors of Vanuatu experienced life in previous centuries and even experience it for yourself. On visiting, villagers and chiefs provide a warm welcome to visitors and you’ll be able to engage in various activities that highlight how life used to be. You can prepare native foods such as medicine and try creating weaving mats and hats for an enjoyable experience for everyone.
Wet N Wild Adventure Park
The only adventure park in Vanuatu, it’s likely your children will be pleading to go and enjoy Wet N Wild adventure park. It hosts an array of activities for the whole family to enjoy. It includes giant slippery water slides, Segways, go-kart racing and more.
There’s also an on-site cafe for when all the energy is used up from engaging in the activities, providing food and drink options for everyone. You can also purchase merchandise and towels in the cafe.
Port Vila Markets
Take a bite into the fresh local produce with the Port Vila markets that sell fresh fruit and vegetables which have been sourced locally. They’re open 6 days a week, 24 hours a day and hosted by local women from the villages around the islands.
Depending on the time you go there is a range of products and foods to choose from to get a tasting for. There are on-site food stalls to get a bite to eat once you’ve worked up an appetite from walking around.
Havannah Beach and Boat Club
For a unique experience, there’s the chance to visit Havannah Beach and Boat Club who provide beachside camping facilities for a luxury and cosy stay. During your time there you’ll be able to make the most of BBQ areas, try a bit of snorkelling or even take a boat out to the shores and do a bit of exploring. There’s hire gear to use when you first get there and you can even purchase souvenirs to take back memorabilia from your stay.
Rather than going for the typical holiday idea like renting an Algarve villa in Portugal or a Chateau in France for your family destination, why not explore Vanuatu and embrace a different type of holiday destination that is sure to be one to remember for the family.
