Vanuatu Full-Day Shore Excursion: Cultural Village and Blue Lagoon
From US$85.00
Overview
Experience Vanuatu’s natural wonders and cultural heritage while in port in Port Vila on this full-day shore excursion. Learn about Pacific Island life with a visit to the Balihai Custom Village, spot sea turtles at Naiwe Beach, and dive in to swim in the Blue Lagoon.
What to Expect
Your full-day shore excursion begins when you are met at the Vila Main Wharf at 9am (dependent on when your cruise ship arrives) by your guide who will be holding a sign board with your name on it. You will be transported from the Vila Main Wharf and will head on a brief drive through the busy town of Port Vila.
Your first stop of the morning will be at a Cultural Village. You will be able to see the local artifacts and tools that the locals used to use on a daily basis to survive in the islands. This is a trip back in Vanuatu’s history. Following this you will watch a short cultural dance performance before having a walk around a small zoo section of the village to see some of the island’s wildlife.  
The second stop of the day is at Naiwe Beach. Here you will get to see turtles which are over 100-years old. They are the main attraction of Naiwe Beach. If you wish you can also have a snorkel at the beautiful beach nearby.
Third stop is at the Blue Lagoon. You will get to swim in a natural swimming pool of refreshing crystal blue water.
Next you will have a chance to do your duty free shopping. Vanuatu has great deals on duty free and doing this at the end of the tour means you don’t have to carry your shopping around all day.  
Lastly visit the wharf market. You will have time to walk through the mama’s market before getting back on-board your cruise ship.

Great guides and friendly service!

I did a round island tour with Yumi tours that included the cultural village, blue lagoon, and Survivor Beach. Overall, the experience was great. The team was very responsive to my emails and provided very friendly and thoughtful service throughout.
