Monthly Climate Averages for Champagne Bay Espiritu Santo Vanuatu
Espiritu Santo is truly one of the few places in the world where you can be on a beach alone, dive or snorkel with a thousand colorful fish, explore tribal and ritualistic cultural sites and follow it up with dinner on a jetty overlooking the South Pacific.
Espiritu Santo is the largest island of Vanuatu. It was named by Pedro De Quiros in the 17th century when he thought he had discovered the fabled great southern land of Australia.
Champagne Bay boasts a crescent of snow-white, pristine sand, fringed by coconut palms. There is also a freshwater spring that bubbles onto the eastern end of the beach (hence its name) at low tide. An offshore reef protects a lovely lagoon in which you can safely swim and snorkel. The lagoon is backed by a densely vegetated mountain range-topping 1700 meters.
When you're not underwater, the preferred pastimes here include strolling along the fine white sand, sunbathing, and shopping at the beachside stalls set up by locals from the village of Hog Harbor.
