Visit Mount Yasur
You are able to visit the magnificent feat of nature throughout the year. Mount Yasur has the claim that it is the most accessible active volcano that you will find on the planet! If you would like to witness first hand this stunning natural winder then you should head to Tanna Island. It has become one of the most popular destinations on the island because the volcano has been erupting regularly for the last eight hundred years. If you are fortunate enough you may be able to witness the light show that takes place at night. It is advisable to talk to your hotel about the safety and best time to visit the volcano.
Witness fantastic diving
There is something quite remarkable about watching people diving from great heights in to the ocean, I could sit for hours watching these dare devils expertly dive in to the clear waters below. It has to be said that you should not try this yourself, the people doing it have been practising for years. There is definitely a chance of serious injury if people misjudge their dive, so stick to being a spectator instead of having a go. The best place to see the divers is Pentecost Island, here you will be able to watch people diving in form over thirty meters. They dive from the rocks in to the water below. Some of the people you see will just be kids, they can be as young as seven years ild. Another thing that you will be able to see will be the locals constructing a vine tower that they then use as a diving platform, these vine towers take weeks to build and can sometimes be as high as twenty meters.
