Vanuatu is an archipelago of 83 islands, stretching some 1,300 kilometres north to south, between Fiji and New Caledonia. Each island has its own unique culture and, like the weather, the welcome is always warm.

Peak season

Peak season is during the cooler winter months (April to September) and when most visitors arrive on cheap flights to Vanuatu. But don’t worry the weather will still be warm, with temps averaging 23C, and you’re able to swim all year round.

The three most popular regions when searching for cheap flights to Vanuatu are: Port Vila, Espiritu Santo and smaller Tanna Island, which can be accessed by inter-island flight or boat cruise. Vanuatu really does offer something for everyone, whether you’re into active sports such as scuba diving or bungy jumping, or simply appreciating beautiful beaches, waterfalls and island culture.

Off Season

Average temps are around 28C in November / December and rise to 34C from January to March. High humidity and rain can make travelling unpleasant at this time, cyclones are also a possibility.
