Underwater Post Office, Port Vila

(2.9/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Participate in a one-of-a-kind experience at Underwater Post Office, the world's only official underwater post office. Due to Vanuatu being made of over 80 little islands, an underwater post office seems natural when the sea plays such an important part of life. Located within a marine reserve, visitors buy postcards on land and fill them out before diving to the post office. The mailbox only sits a few meters down, so scuba gear is not required. Snorkelers and casual swimmers can easily reach it, or the reserve staff can help. Put Underwater Post Office into our Port Vila vacation generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Port Vila.

  • 水下邮局是我们去瓦图两个重要目的之一!另外一个是火山。但这地方着实让人失望。海水一点也不透彻,很污,照出来的照片都不清晰,尤其是在水下邮局这块区域。另外,寄这个邮局明信片本来是件非常有意义的事,从网上看到好多介绍 ,都写着明信片是特别材质制作的,防水笔书写的,然后盖钢印再投的,不是普通的墨水印戳。但买的时候 ,300VT的一张片子,跟普通明信片没有区别,写地址的笔就是一支铅笔!邮戳是统一印刷的!说...  more »
