If you’re up to more adventure, check out the Lelepa Tour to Lelepa Island. Lelepa Island is located just a half hours drive from Port Vila on the northwest side of Efate Island. The island is composed of over 160 acres of natural, unspoiled tropical forest surrounded by pristine white beaches and majestic palm trees glowing gently in the constant ocean breeze. You can get to the island across Havana Harbor on the banana boat. Let’s be honest – how many of you have been on a banana boat. Why, if you’re visiting the South Pacific, you absolutely, positively must get a ride on a banana boat!
Lelepa Island offers you a chance to get out and about and stroll through the rainforest. You’ll see plenty of flora and fauna that the locals use for medicine, as well as beautiful and unique trees and brush that fill the air with wonderful aromas and delight your senses with their variety of colors. Take the opportunity to inspect interesting creatures and native insects.
While you’re there, take the time to spend a couple of hours snorkeling. You can also go fishing or just chill out on the beach and enjoy the white, sand and beautiful vistas as your guide prepares your lunch.
This wonderful tour is operated by Lelepa Island Tours. They offer departures every day except Saturdays. Tours include a delicious barbecue lunch, soft drinks, and snorkeling gear. You’ll also enjoy morning and afternoon refreshments along with the laughs and history provided by your friendly guide.
