The Espiritu Santo Tourism Association has developed this
website to ensure you have the
information required to make your Espiritu Santo experience
Espiritu Santo is an “away from the masses” experience so you can take the
opportunity to do as little or as much as you need to in this unrushed region
Espiritu Santo hosts a wide variety of adventures and experiences. There
is a range of places to stay, boutique hotels to island resorts to dive
lodges catering for every budget.
Espiritu Santo is truly one of the few places in the world where you can
be on a beach alone, dive or snorkel with a thousand colourful fish,
explore tribal and ritualistic cultural sites and follow it up with dinner
on a jetty overlooking the South Pacific.
Espiritu Santo is the
largest island of Vanuatu. It was named by Pedro De Quiros in the 17th
century when he thought he had discovered the fabled great southern land
Just a short flight north from Port Vila, and now with quick connecting international and domestic flights from Brisbane, Sydney and
Auckland arriving five times a week, Espiritu Santo has never been more accessible.
Despite the passing of three centuries since its discovery by Europeans,
Espiritu Santo's majestic beauty is little changed. It is perhaps best
known as the inspiration for James A. Michener's classic "Tales of the
South Pacific", written in World War II while the US Forces were stationed
For travelers, the beauty of Espiritu Santo is unmatched. Stunning
jewel-like islands lay just a few hundred metres from coconut fringed
beaches lined with powdery white sand. Amazing blue water swimming holes
are connected by underground caverns and majestic mountains stretching
from one end of the island to the other.
