Volcanoes and waterfalls, ancient art and dance, and a myriad of hidden bays and beaches, it’s not surprising travellers take cheap flights to Vanuatu and fall in love with these lush tropical islands. Vanuatu is a popular holiday destination with Kiwis and Aussies as it is well set up for tourist activities, and very family oriented. Port Vila, on the island of Efate, is the capital and where flights to Vanuatu land. It is the liveliest of Vanuatu’s towns with lots of hotels, restaurants and markets and from here you can do day cruises to other islands. Peak season for Vanuatu is the dry season from July to October when the weather is warm and dry and temperatures average 28C. Flight tickets and hotel prices are at their highest in these months and accommodation fills up quickly. Book early to avoid disappointment. August to October is an extra busy period as it coincides with the Australian school holidays.
