One of the main reasons why we think destination weddings are such a great idea is that instead of spending just one day with your nearest and dearest, generally the bride and groom are able to enjoy either a long weekend or even a whole week with their favourite people. It’s also a wonderful opportunity for both families to really come together and get to know each other.
In today’s blog post we wanted to share some Vanuatu Destination Wedding group activity ideas that we recommend if you are thinking of something fun to organize for your guests.
Pele Island Day Tourhttp://www.evergreenvanuatu.com/pele-island-beach--snorkeling-tour.html
Pele Island is one of our personal favourite spots. Evergreen Vanuatu offers a full day tour to the island. You can easily arrange for your group no matter how big or small to take the trip.
Once you’re on the island there is so much to do; Village tour, snorkelling (some of the best in Vanuatu!), kayaking, swimming in the crystal blue waters, relaxing on the beach, take the 20 minute hike up the mountains (some of the most amazing views you will see while in Vanuatu). They also provide a delicious BBQ lunch and local Vanuatu string band entertainment. We recommend taking an esky of local Tusker beer and champagne with you!
Ekasup CulturalVillage – Night Feast
While in Vanuatu, you can’t miss a local Melanesian feast and we love the night feast at Ekasup Cultural village. The feast operates every Friday night and costs only 3100vt p/adult or 1550vt p/child. Not only will you and your guest’s feast on the island buffet but you’ll also be able to watch the natives perform live to the original rhythm and beat of pacific music.
Also included is Kava tasting – a great introduction to the Vanuatu culture and customs. For further information take a look at the Vanuatu Tourism website www.vanuatutourism.com/ekasup.html
Meridian Charters Sunset Cruise http://meridianchartersvanuatu.com/html/sunset_cruises.html
What better way to spend an afternoon then on a sunset cruise around Port Vila harbour with your future husband/wife and your wedding guests.
This 2 hour cruise includes food and drinks and has a cocktail party like atmosphere. The sunsets are to die for, music is great, the canapés are yummy and it’s all in all a great tour! The cruise leaves nightly from the Irirki Jetty (town side) at 5:00pm.
