Vanuatu is an island nation located in the South Pacific Ocean. The archipelago, which is of volcanic origin, is some 1,090 miles east of northern Australia, 310 miles west of Fiji, and southeast of the Solomon Islands, near New Guinea. It has approximately 82 relatively small, geologically newer islands of volcanic origin (65 of them inhabited), with about 800 miles north to south distance between the outermost islands.
Takara is a very small village of only 200 or so people, right on the coast of the northernmost part of the main island (Efate). It is in a beautiful location pushed right up against the beach with a view of several islands close by. Most of the islands here were formed by volcanoes.
There aren't really any "attractions" in Takara, considering it's just a little village, but there are PLENTY things to do!
Yes, we actually went out, found octopuses (octopi? haha), I stuck my hand in the reef, pulled it out, and brought it back for supper!
This was a truly once in a lifetime experience; being in the middle of the ocean, being able to see the bottom, and jumping off the coral, into the water, and playing and splashing with the villagers.
Peace Love and Vanuatu
