Ureparapara Island, Vanuatu

Ureparapara (also known as Parapara for short) is the third largest island in the Banks group of northern Vanuatu, after Gaua and Vanua Lava.

Imagine cruising into the cone of a volcano surrounded on three sides by 300 metre cliffs, Ureparapara is one of the most specactular islands in the South Pacific. The only way to experience this island is by sea, after travelling ashore, there will be entertainment by the local people with dancing before a guided walk to the top of the caldera for fantastic views across the island and great photography opportunities.
