Underwater Post Office, Port Vila

2.8
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.

  • Great for kids to send a postcard and get them into the water and see a few fish, but it does need a bit TLC to get back to good attraction.  more »
  • Such a cool experience and just a bit of fun whilst you're away to get a post card to a loved one. A must see.  more »
  • Easy to get there, crystal clear water. Plenty of fish and sealife. Great learning area for the children to view and take part in the activities  more »
