Efate: Full-Day Tour

1. Efate: Full-Day Tour

The first stop on your tour is Iarofa Village where you'll experience traditional local practices and skills including dancing and an amazing fire-walking display. Then discover the Blue Lagoon, a wonderful quirk of nature. The water is slightly salty and so blue from the mixing of the limestone fresh-water springs and the tidal sea water. Try the rope swings into the water. After the lagoon, visit Eton Village and Eton Primary School. Chat with the teachers and meet the pikininis (the students) or tour the school and gain an insight into how our children receive their learning. The students may perform a song for the guests or invite you to join them in a game of soccer or volleyball. Then stop by Pangpang to see the ancient banyan trees, before heading to a beach-side restaurant where you can enjoy a buffet lunch to live local string band music  After lunch, learn a little about the World War II history of Efate with Ernest. You'll hear his story and see his collection of unique World War II relics. Finally, visit Vanuatu's "Survivor Beach" at Gideon's Landing, which was the location for Season 9 of the hit American TV series, and enjoy afternoon tea (or coffee). If time permits, it may be possible to enjoy some snorkeling or swimming near the end of the tour.
