Surfers, sightseers and families love this exotic island nation for its fun waves, great beaches and wealth of cultural attractions.
Surfing in Vanuatu
Vanuatu has been a relatively unknown and an underground surf destination for a few years now. The island is rich in culture and history, has beautiful sandy beaches, lush jungles and mountains as well as some really good surf breaks!
It’s the perfect destination to take a non-surfing partner or family with a variety of activities and surf breaks to keep everyone entertained.
Comprising of 83 islands, with the capital of Port Villa being on the main island its only 3 hours flying time from Auckland.
The best way to take advantage of Vanuatu’s surf is to base yourself at one of the islands resorts and explore the surf spots around the island by rental car. Alternatively you could paddle out to the main breaks off the south coast.
This is also a great destination for the more adventurous if you’re up to it! The outer islands offer amazing snorkelling, pristine beaches, live volcanoes and – if you search for them – some epic uncrowded (and possibly) un-named surf breaks….
