Wala Vanuatu Cruise Port Guide


This is a tender port.

Wala is located off the NE coast of Malakula Island, Vanuatu. Ships can anchor between the tiny islands of Wala - a coral atoll - and Rano, so you are free to relax on pure white beaches and swim or enjoy snorkelling in the translucent waters of either island.

The island residents are gracious in allowing tourists to tour the island, as they consider the island to be taboo for non-natives. You can take a guided tour through the village to see cooking and hunting demonstrations, perhaps enjoy a traditional ceremony, or simply learn about their centuries-old history. The locals are renowned for their magnificent dancing displays and these are not be missed. It's a great place to obtain some very good quality handicrafts from the local markets and stores.

Reef shoes are advisable for swimming and snorkelling.
