Vanua Lava

One days sail north of Espiritu Santo is Vanua Lava, with 330sqkm the largest island and administrative centre of the Banks and Torres with Port Patteson as it's a large and scenic bay. On the west coast of Vanua Lava it's worthwile stopping at a good snorkelling anchorage with a thunderous waterfall falling into a natural pool on the shore.
Custom dancers from the Banks are known to be superb dancers and they can be seen in Sola or Port Vila in some hotels or at any of the cultural events.
The fauna is still very varied and apart from crabs, lobsters and prawns you can find turtles, wild pigs and pacific boas.
