Espiritu Santo

Trip Planner South Pacific  /  Vanuatu  /  Espiritu Santo
(4.4/5 based on 3,200+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: nature, beaches, sightseeing
Espiritu Santo offers an impressive combination of natural beauty and cultural experiences. While the island's larger towns deliver glitzy hotels filled with modern amenities, the islands mountainous interior allows visitors to step back in time. Towering mountains stand imposingly above traditional villages deeply connected with their forest surroundings. Descend into the depths surrounding the island to explore historic wrecks and shimmering blue holes, or bring your snorkeling gear to see why this island remains one of the finest diving destinations on the planet. Get a taste of the island's vital role as an Allied military base during World War II by touring its countless war relics and remnants. If you want more sun and sand on your Espiritu Santo itinerary, settle on one of the island's beaches, blessed with white sands, picnic areas, and palm trees. Make the most of your holiday in Espiritu Santo by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Vanuatu trip itinerary builder.

Where to stay in Espiritu Santo

You'll find most of Espiritu Santo's accommodations clustered in the southeastern corner of the island, where the city of Luganville offers everything from basic beach houses and bungalows, to boutique hotels and upscale resorts. Luganville's city center boasts many hotels within walking distance of most local attractions and beaches, with quieter guesthouses an easy jaunt inland by car. Head up the eastern coast of the island to find beach lodges and sizeable resorts strung out along the shores of the Coral Sea. Due to the island's mountainous and forested interior, most areas away from the coast offer little other than family-run guesthouses and basic hotels, though these often offer budget-friendly deals.
