A Hidden Paradise in the Pacific
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 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 ambiance that words alone cannot describe: gently swaying palms; pristine white sandy beaches; luxuriant vegetation; tropical marine corals and, a myriad of colorful fish species. Added to this are sunsets that take your breath away.
