Welcome to Santo

The Espiritu Santo Tourism Association has developed this website to ensure you have the information required to make your Espiritu Santo experience unforgettable.   Espiritu Santo is an “away from the masses” experience so you can take the opportunity to do as little or as much as you need to in this unrushed region of Vanuatu. Espiritu Santo hosts a wide variety of adventures and experiences. There is a range of places to stay, boutique hotels to island resorts to dive lodges catering for every budget.   Espiritu Santo is truly one of the few places in the world where you can be on a beach alone, dive or snorkel with a thousand colourful fish, explore tribal and ritualistic cultural sites and follow it up with dinner on a jetty overlooking the South Pacific.   Espiritu Santo is the largest island of Vanuatu. It was named by Pedro De Quiros in the 17th century when he thought he had discovered the fabled great southern land of Australia. A direct 2 1/2 hour flight from Brisbane weekly, or just a short flight north from Port Vila, and now with quick connecting international and domestic flights from Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland arriving five times a week, Espiritu Santo has never been more accessible.
Despite the passing of three centuries since its discovery by Europeans, Espiritu Santo's majestic beauty is little changed. It is perhaps best known as the inspiration for James A. Michener's classic "Tales of the South Pacific", written in World War II while the US Forces were stationed in Santo. For travelers, the beauty of Espiritu Santo is unmatched. Stunning jewel-like islands lay just a few hundred metres from coconut fringed beaches lined with powdery white sand. Amazing blue water swimming holes are connected by underground caverns and majestic mountains stretching from one end of the island to the other. Explore this website before exploring the fantastic island to find accommodation, tours and facilities.
