The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

The island of Espiritu Santo played an important role in WWII, acting as a base for the Allies to defend against the Japanese. Today, scuba divers and snorklers flock to these waters to observe ships like the Grand SS President Coolidge - an opulent vessel that ran into a mine and now rests under the crystal clear waters. With an abundance of beautiful reefs to explore, you'll find yourself swimming in a diver's paradise.

Sporting Adventures

  • Take the trip inland to Belmol Horse Paradise and ride through Espiritu Santo’s largest cattle and coconut plantation.
  • Test your fishing wits against the rainbow runners, bonito, wahoo and other game fish on a sports fishing outing. You’ll also be helping to support the locals as catches are usually donated to the villages.
  • Go on a trekking tour of Espiritu Santo’s breathtaking jungles, waterfalls, butterflies, and other wildlife.

Shopping for Bargains

Pick up some of the local culture's charm with one of their many handcrafted pieces. You can find baskets and mats, carvings, shell and bead necklaces, headdresses, ankle rattles, carved bowls, masks and tree fern figures. The crafts you'll find are usually small copies of larger art pieces created for traditional ceremonies.

Get a Taste of Local Flavor

Home to the Belmol Cattle Project, this little island supplies beef to Japan, Australia and many other Pacific Islands. Come and sample the local angus, limousin, and charolais directly from the source. But the island's menu boasts much more than beef. Treat yourself to sweet pineapples, mangos, island cabbage, and coconut crab - considered to be an island delicacy and an aphrodisiac.
