Join us in this exciting annual event and cultural festival. There’s a celebration of kastom dance, canoe-making, kava tasting, and of course Vanuatu’s ultimate outrigger canoe race followed by the event’s big ‘Island Night’.

The canoe race and festival is on Vanuatu’s Independence Day – which wraps up a week of celebrations in South Malekula. So it’s a great opportunity to hang out with the local community during this festive time and take in other local attractions.

There’s the popular 4-day outrigger canoe trip which includes dugong (sea-cow) spotting and snorkeling, or for a more laid back holiday several beautifully located bungalows offer a base to relax and enjoy the festive week.
