US "Islands" Magazine Ranks Vanuatu in Top 10 Wild Islands


Popular Cascades waterfall with its turquoise-green cascaded water pools and surrounding bush treks is just one of many attributes that make Vanuatu an attractive eco destination

The category promotes authentic islands escapes and holiday, and according to the magazine from the USA, Vanuatu is a top of the lot for purest, wildest, and most eco-friendly islands based on efforts to preserve culture and ecology, as well as quality national parks and sustainable opportunities for responsible travellers.

"Even in the idyllic blue waters of the South Pacific, the natural colors of Vanuatu stand out. Here, ecosystems range from rainforest to grassland to coral reef, and the 3,000-year-old Melanesian culture nurtures more than 100 indigenous languages and dialects." 


Comedy Hypnosis Dinner Show at Benjor in October

From Benjor Management:
David and I are very excited to be hosting what is destined to be a fabulous night at Benjor. World Renown Mark Anthony is coming over to Vanuatu especially to perform his absolutely hilarios “hypnaughty” Show! Thursday, October 6th - 6pm. We have seen Mark in action and highly recommend him; a true entertainer, the things he gets people to do it truly amazing, and extremely funny and really rather naughty (but don’t worry, no nudity or groping and you don’t have to participate, you can safely watch from your seat!) This is one night not to be missed!

Our wonderful Chefs will be cooking up a storm with a big two course banquet, local singer Amugi will be getting the party started, and of course our friendly efficient staff will be making sure that the drinks are flowing! We are limiting the numbers to 110 and already tables are selling fast. Because of the resounding positive response to this Dinner Show, we recommend that people get a group together and are pre-selling tickets! So, spread the word amongst your group of friends, let us know of your intention to come, collect payments of 6,000vt per ticket and get back to either David or myself asap. Don’t leave it too late; we would hate you to miss out! Seriously can’t wait! Warmly, Nola Atkins, Benjor Beach Club Resort. Call +678 26078. (Source: VTO Island Nius)

The Havannah offers Seaplane Transfers

For 45,000 vatu, couples, or three people up to 200kg can be transferred from or to The Havannah and the Airport/Iririki/1st or 2nd Lagoon by Seaplane in the South Pacific's only flying boat! This is not simply a direct transfer. Seaplane Transfers always include a leisurely scenic flight as far as Eratap resort which encompasses both lagoons, Eratap, Erakor, the city, the harbour, Iririki, Mele Bay, Hideaway Island, the Cascades, and Havannah Harbour. Total flight time is thus some 25 minutes. Seaplane Transfers are done by Paul Dalley, Vanuatu Seaplanes Chief Pilot.

As the only flight instructor in the country, flying in our dual controlled aircraft also uniquely allows the passengers to pilot the seaplane themselves - no doubt another once in a life first time experience. Likewise passengers receive a full and detailed commentary sprinkled with seaplane poetry. Your high end clients deserve to expect intelligent conversation and education to match the enjoyment of their flight. Finally, due to her amphibious capability allowing safe operation on land, sea and air, her ability to glide smoothly, and extremely robust construction, in a league well above any other airplane and helicopter, a transfer in the flying boat combines comfort with unrivaled safety.

The event’s regional significance has been recognised by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), which has broadcast the Fest’Napuan live to the Pacific region over its Radio Australia network since 2004, and whose “Pacific Break” competition offers a slot at the Fest’Napuan as the first prize for the best unsigned artist in the South Pacific.
