Planning your Holiday


There are good restaurants and bars in downtown Port Vila, but outside of the capital nightlife and entertainment is almost non-existent. You may want to visit a Kava Bar - Vanuatu is renowned for its strong local traditional drink. Kava bars can be found in the back streets of Port Vila and also in local villages.
