The largest island in the nation of Vanuatu, Espiritu Santo is a beautiful and wonderfully friendly paradise island where you can spend your days walking on beaches or diving in the stunning seas surrounding them. This is the island that the musical South Pacific was set on with its lush forests, glorious sands and tropical temperatures. The most famous beach on the island, Champagne Beach, is a beautiful stretch of sand that has an almost pinkish tinge which gives the beach its name and the water comes in all shades of blue.
When visiting the island, most people stay in Luganville which is the largest settlement on the island and the second largest in Vanuatu, as there are a number of larger hotels here and it is easier to arrange diving trips. Most people come here for the diving due to the famed wreck of the S.S. President Coolidge, a large sunken battleship, but there are a number of other activities on offer here. Try visiting the Millennium Cave for an adventurous trek in the dark, play golf on the exotic island course or go for a dip in one of the many ‘blue hole’ springs that are around the island.
