Removed from the modern Vanuatu, Mota Lava and Ra islands are a pleasant island escape. These islands are relatively small and most attractions are easy to walk to; explore white sand beaches and coral reefs around west Mota Lava and Ra or climb the massive rocks on Ra, or climb the Sleeping Mountain on Mota Lava. It's a short but steep climb, but you'll be rewarded with magnificent views. There are beautiful island bungalows concentrated around west Mota Lava and Ra.

Here you will experience eco and cultural tours due to the nature of the island and people. You can walk around Mota Lava which would take about 2.5 hours along the truck road or about 3.5 hours through the bush, or you can hire a boat, put your feet up and try your luck fishing.

The TVL tower is on Mota Lava and provides good coverage of east Vanua Lava.
Every November, the locals celebrate St Andrews & Traditional Leaf Fishing Festival, followed by St John Festival combining both church and cultural activities in Avar Village on Mota lava.
