Peak season

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.

Off Season

November to March is the wet season in Vanuatu so expect warm and humid weather and more rainfall. You should be able to secure the cheapest flights to Vanuatu in the off season, and have your pick of accommodation but getting around may be more difficult.

Bauerfield International Airport (VLI) is located approximately 8 km north west of Port Vila. Many hotels provide their guests with free airport minibus shuttle services but, if not, convenient public transport in the form of taxis and buses is on hand. A taxi ride takes 10-15 minutes into town but but do agree a price upfront before setting off. Privately owned buses are available to transport passengers from the airport into town as well as other resorts around the island. Car hire desks are also located inside the airport terminal. Pre-booking a car rental in advance is advisable during the peak holiday season.

Only a 10-minute bus ride from town is the exciting, L-Hippocampus the Sea Horse Ranch. It’s one of Vanuatu’s major adventure attractions with fun trail rides, bareback swimming treks, rainforest rides, sunset trails and beach combing walks. How about going on a day cruise from Port Villa harbour to visit Tranquillity Island? Try snorkelling and go to see the turtle sanctuary.
