About Vanuatu

The Republic of Vanuatu is a Pacific Island country located in the South Pacific Ocean. Vanuatu’s islands are the perfect place to discover a world of sunshine and wild adventures. Deserted beaches, ancient cultures, remote and rugged islands, and world-class diving are just a small part of the magnetism of this scattered 80-plus island archipelago.

Vanuatu is divided into six provinces. All provinces have their signature attractions, which range from water music, snake dancers and champagne beaches to vibrant cultures, magma-filled active volcanos, pristine blue holes and World War 2 relics.

Vanuatu is a member of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States, Non-Aligned Movement, Organization international de la Francophonie, Pacific Community, Pacific Islands Forum, United Nations, and World Trade Organization. The country’s population is approximately 270,000 and encompasses a diversity of languages spoken such as French, English and Bislama.
