Take off to Tanna’s Whitegrass ResortLenakel, Tanna Island

Leave Vanuatu’s main island of Efate behind and head to a land of adventure. Thankfully that doesn’t mean forsaking all comforts when you land at Whitegrass Ocean Resort on Tanna. Imagine a throwback to childhood holidays, where you’ve got the sun on your face, exploration on your mind, and little connection to the outside world.

Overlooking the island’s rocky northwest shore, the breezy bar at this all-buré resort is just the spot to reflect on everything you saw that day. In the dining room, the daily-changing menu features local produce, including lots of just-landed fish.

Some of the bungalows overlook the sea, but those further back on the property are bigger and excellent for families. Arrange a dive trip at the on-site shop, book a massage at the spa or plunge into the ocean from the jetty. Staff members arrange excursions, including visits to rumbling Mount Yasur, boat rides to the Blue Cave and trips to the kastom village of Yakel, that will keep you busy and have you telling tales for months to come.
