Vanuatu Top 5

We consulted Sebastien Bador from Vanuatu travel to see what he gets up to in his spare time. Sebastien looks after the events on the islands and tries to spend any spare moment with family.

Go for a dive in our clear waters.
I obtained my PADI open water certification a few years ago. There are many dive centres that I go diving with, which include: Big Blue Dive, Nautilus Dive, Hideaway Dive, Sailaway Dive and Tranquillity Island Dive in Efate Island.

Entertain myself at Mele.
This area boasts fun activities for everyone, I just choose from golfing, zorbing, waterfall abseiling, rainforest zipling, snorkelling, boat-towing and I might even post a letter at the world's only underwater post office. I like to grab a coffee at the coffee factory and ladies would like to check out the cosmetics distillery, before having dinner.

Take my horse for a ride.
My family has horses that are pensioners at the Club Hippique Adventure Park. I'm fortunate to ride my horse (called Fortune) through swaying coconut plantations, along fine white sandy beaches, under tropical rainforest or to roaring waterfalls.

Enjoy the beach side.
Erakor, Iririki, Hideaway are some islands within the capital city boundaries where I like to relax. They have resort facilities with sun-beds, bars, etc. For a full-day at the sea-side my preferences are to drive further to beaches located at Eton (East Coast) or Havannah Bay (West Coast) like the Havannah Ecolodge or the Wahoo Bar. Northern islands such as Nguna, Pele or even Emao are a must for an overnight stay.

Relax at the natural hot springs.
When the weather is not so nice I like to go to North Efate to the natural hot springs. Visitors can immerse themselves in the warm mud with therapeutic properties, then indulge their bodies in natural hot pools, which are managed by the local communities.
