Vanuatu – Espiritu Santo

Espiritu Santo (commonly known as ‘Santo’) is arguably one of the most well-known dive destinations in the South Pacific. Not only is it the resting place of the world-renowned wreck SS President Coolidge, it’s also a stunning tropical getaway. Take time out from the hustle and bustle of modern life and enjoy the peace and quiet of this gorgeous island. 

Despite the island’s size, you will find two very different terrains. Along the western side of the island is a rugged landscape of mountains, while the south and east are flat, fertile and filled with agriculture. This rugged landscape carries on under the sea, creating a marine terrain of caverns and caves. To the north is Vanuatu’s first national park, Vathe Conservation Area which provides a jungle sanctuary for the islands diverse variety of endemic species inclusive of birds, butterflies, wild orchids, flying foxes and reptiles. 

The island of Santo played an essential role during WWII as it provided a base in the South Pacific for over 100,000 allied troops and support staff. This massive occupation of the island is still very evident today, with a prevalence of historic sites and abandoned equipment both above and below sea level. 

Luganville, the island’s capital, is just busy enough to give you a small variety of hotel bars and restaurants to enjoy during your stay. Whether you’re after a luxury getaway or budget dive lodgings, you will be sure to find accommodation to suit you close by to the township.
