Malakula Island (aka Malekula) is the second-largest of the 83 islands in Vanuatu, with a population of 23,000, in the South Pacific region of Melanesia. There are nearly 30 different languages spoken on the island. Malakula art and ritual objects are among the finest in the country, and the island is also famous for the complex ceremonies and rituals preserved by two of its remarkable tribes: the Big Nambas in the North and the Small Nambas in the central part of the southern area, whose names stem from the size of the penis sheath they wear, made out of banana or pandanus leaves.

Lakatoro, the capital of Malampa Province, is situated on its eastern shore and is the largest settlement in the island. The interior of the island is mountainous, rugged, and forest-covered with good walking and bird-watching treks. It has a maximum elevation of 879 m. It is called Mt. Liambele. Take the opportunity to visit one of the traditional villages. Their inhabitants will be happy to share their customs, notable for singing, dancing and art. It was, until recently, the culture to bind infants' skulls to alter the shape of their heads. Cone-shaped skulls were said to be a sign of higher social status.

You could visit some of the old cannibal sites hidden in the bush on north Malakula, which are fascinating despite many of the bones and skulls having been removed or buried. Take a tour to the Maskelynes and the small offshore islands along the east coast of Malakula, and enjoy the lovely sand beaches and coral reefs that offer good opportunities for snorkelling and diving. While historically the tribes were renowned as fierce warriors and having a reputation for cannibalism, you will thoroughly enjoy your visit to this eco-oriented and culturally rich island.
