Lapita Beach Aore Island Vanuatu

Sitting on the same latitude as Port Douglas in Australia, across 1700 km of open Coral Sea, the same distance as Port Douglas is to Brisbane, is Vanuatu’s Aore Island. This is the heart of James Michener’s Adventures in Paradise. Arguably one of the most beautiful of all South Pacific islands, Aore is genuinely unique. Not only due to its unsurpassed natural beauty and pristine marine environment, but also the warm friendly smiles of the local Ni-Vanuatu people, the balmy tropical breezes and the wild native orchids.

Located in the northern Sanma Province and sitting at the foot of Vanuatu’s largest island, Espiritu Santo, Aore has a tropical ambience that words alone cannot describe: gently swaying palms; pristine white sandy beaches; luxuriant vegetation; tropical marine corals and, a myriad of colourful fish species. Added to this are sunsets that simply take your breath away.

The Bruat and Segond Channels narrowly separate Aore from the surrounding islands of Espiritu Santo, Malo and Tatuba. The land mass of Aore, roughly 11 kilometres in length and 9 kilometres at its widest point, has common origins with many islands throughout the South Pacific, volcanic uplift and later coral formations. Over time the corals continued to build and the land continued to rise from the sea. Wind, birds and ocean currents provided the seeds, high rainfall and warm temperatures making the environment conducive to growth and enabling the dense tropical vegetation to flourish.
