About Cruising to Luganville

Espiritu Santo, known locally as Santo, is the largest island of the Vanuatu archipelago and lies northwest of the island of Efate, where the capital Vila is located. Its population is very diverse, with many different languages reflecting centuries of Pacific region migration. In 1980, Santo was the scene of a rebellion led by local politician Jimmy Stevens, aimed at securing independence from Vanuatu. (The effort was quickly put down.) The main crop is copra. Luganville, at the southeastern corner of the island, is the second-largest town of Vanuatu. It's like visiting a time warp with quaint shops (many still owned by Chinese settlers) and a wide, dusty main street; the general stores seem to have one of everything. Plan your trip to Espiritu Santo with our upcoming Vanuatu cruise itineraries.

Great beautiful place. Very hot and humid when we were there, so beautiful cruising to the port. The people are so friendly and there are so many tour options to go on. Unfortunately I couldnt do anything on this porRead More

I love Luganville Or Santo as it is otherwise known, there are a lot of great options to get out and see or do but this time around I made some bad choices and what should have been our best port ended up the worst. Read More
