Pentecost Island, which takes its name from the day on which it was first sighted by Europeans, is one of the 83 islands that make up the nation of Vanuatu in the South Pacific. It lies 190 km due N of the capital Port Vila. The island is long and narrow, with a mountainous interior, rain forest vegetation, streams and waterfalls. There are no towns on Pentecost as most of the islanders live in small villages and grow their own food. The highest point is 947m, and some areas have plantations of coconut, coco and kava. It is the original home of bungee jumping.

The island is known throughout the world for its land-diving, to celebrate the yam festival, from April to June, when men and boys dive from land-diving towers (20-30m), with only elastic vines to break their fall. It is a spectacular and dangerous leap, but injuries are rare. Land-diving is practised in the south of the island where you can also visit the traditional villages. The island is an ideal place for bush-walking and bird-watching, while the crystal clear rivers are great for cooling down on a hot day. Both coastlines are covered with black beaches and are fascinating to visit.

Most tourists take in the Land Diving festival, a village tour, jungle walk, and visit the gorgeous waterfalls and swimming holes. A road runs the length of the island on the west side. If you have half a day, try climbing Mt Vetmar (887m), Pentecost's second highest mountain. Local traditions are strong, and with sedative kava being a popular traditional drink for men only (Vanuatu is the ‘home’ of kava), it is customary for visitors staying at the villages to partake. Adventurous travellers will be rewarded with a 'real island feeling'. Bislama is Vanuatu’s national language. Educated islanders know English or French.
