It’s been a long wait, but the deserted beaches, underwater adventures and geographic anomalies of Vanuatu are once again within reach of travellers.
The Pacific Ocean country, made up of around 80 islands, released restrictions to fully-vaccinated travellers on July 1.
Our editor Jeremy Drake visited in 2019, just before the pandemic – this is what the world has been missing out on the last few years:
There aren’t many places you can lay on a deserted beach, surf epic breaks and dive stunning reefs, as well as climb to the edge of a volcano and zipline through a jungle.
Air Vanuatu will re-open five non-stop flights a week from Sydney to Port Vila, which is just three hours and 30 minutes. This makes Vanuatu one of the most accessible adventure travel spots for Australians.
We at get lost reckon we know the South Pacific pretty well…it is a region that feels a bit like those people that live down the street that you eventually become best mates with (check our South Pacific Cool Guide from issue one of our digital magazine for more South Pacific epicness).
You can fly to Vanuatu from all major Australian cities via Air Vanuatu.
