This is a great cultural experience. The chief and people of the village are very welcoming and are very passionate about teaching us their customs. Very educational. Will go back again and again.

There are many cultural villages on Efate, but this village is exceedingly well run. The villagers speak good English. The information stations are informative. The dances are well performed. Great place to stop. Wonderful photo opportunities.
