Be Amazed with Tanna Adventures.
Tanna is one of the "must see" islands of the tropical paradise that is Vanuatu. Let Tanna Adventures show you what is one of the most unique locations in the South Pacific, and allow you to step back into and admire another world.
Esso, Rachel and their family are well known and respected on Tanna, and their family feature in the highland region called Middlebush. Esso is an ' Island Tour' operator of many years experience and is conversant in most of the village languages on Tanna. He is entertaining and always provides an enjoyable travel experience, that you are unlikely to get anywhere else.
Their home and holiday accommodation (Nima) is situated on an escarpment with sweeping views over their tropical, black sand surf beach situated in front of an extensive coconut plantation. Mount Yasur Volcano can be seen in the background, standing out amongst the lush green tropical forest and bush.
Your Tanna Island Experience ........
Vanuatu is an enigma, on the one hand those who are unfamiliar, classify it alongside Fiji, Tahiti or the Cook Islands, while others identify it with the Solomons and Papua New Guinea. In fact Vanuatu is none of these, and yet has elements of all and so much more.
For most travellers, Port Vila is the first and only port of call on their 'Island' holiday. This is a great shame as there is so much more. The different islands have distinct flavours and sides to them. In Tanna, one experiences the sight of huge Banyan, and other tropical rainforest trees which fill the skies, natural bush which is full of tree ferns rather than palms, waterfalls and all types of fruit and vegetable subsistence crops.
A notable feature of Tanna, is the experience of steping back in time, where little or no modern technology is present.
It is the people that come to mind after visting this tropical haven. The travel experience is made richer for those who immerse themselves with the people of Tanna (Man-Tanna). For 'Tourists' (as distinct from 'Travellers'), the experience is likely to be similar to any region in the world where tourists confine themselves to Resorts and Hotels. However, for 'Travellers', those who extend themselves a little further, the rewards are immense. The genuine friendliness of the people that are encountered along the way, together with the insights to their customs and beliefs, is truely memorable and refreshing.
