Aptly named, Champagne Bay, Vanuatu is truly one of the finest tropical getaways. Nestled within the island of Espiritu Santo, this paradise boasts one of the most beautiful beaches in the South Pacific. Famous for its pink sand, coconut trees and sun kissed waters, this heaven on earth has remained largely untouched. Leave the bustle of the touristy beaches behind, bury your toes in the soft sand, and watch time stand still.Find Cruises Sailing to This Port
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.
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.
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.
The official currency of Champagne Bay is the Vatu (VUV).
