Cruises from Pentecost
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.
