Horse riding at Erakor beach

You can arrange this through Club Hippique. The tourism blurb is on target when it says: "For those who want to explore Vanuatu in a different way, Club Hippique Adventure Park offers exciting and new tours on horse back through tranquil rainforests, romantic sunsets and a rare opportunity to meander through a crystal blue watered white sand beach on horse back. Tours include: Erakor Beach Day Tour, which is really an easy ride for anybody to enjoy a horse-back cruise through tropical rainforest and along the shores of a pristine white sand beach, completed by a BBQ lunch on the beach. The Honeymoon ride is an escorted evening trail ride for two. Wine accompanies the ride along with spectacular views and sunset lagoon frontage. The Rainforest ride takes you trekking through tropical landscape with tour guides who provide fascinating information about the native flora and fauna as well as local custom stories. This ride culminates with a swim on horse back in the refreshing lagoon. If all sounds like a must, contact Club Hippique Adventure Park, PO Box 1206, Phone (678) 23347, Email: lenakel@vanuatu.com.vu" Posted by Picasa

Community road block on Devil's Point road

Initially these impromptu roadblocks can be slightly alarming but they are mainly to do with localised disputes about land and rarely affect tourists  Posted by Picasa

Organic beef

Truly excellent beef is produced in Vanuatu, so make sure you have a steak there. It's exported but not always easy to obtain in other countries. Weekend trips from Noumea, by its French residents to Tamanu Beach Resort in Vanuatu are often about the food and particularly the beef. Posted by Picasa
