Underwater Post Office, Port Vila

(420+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • coral has dies due to many factors due to silting. still many fish varieties with going to far. must take reef shoes as the whole island is coral  more »
  • I don't know, really. If you had kids with you this may be great fun. Go for a snorkel instead and save the postage.  more »
  • Just off hideaway island. Easy to find and you can post a letter home if you want. Water was not very clear on the day we went but still a good time snorkelling around the post office.  more »
