Pele Island is a beautiful place to getaway for a little while and relax. The island can be visited daily by boat from the Paonangisu area by the town of Emua on Efate’s north coast. There’s a snorkelling tour provided by the Ever Green. This tour will give you the opportunity to visit one of our most beautiful islands. This is a chance to learn about the historical and local life of the island people along with their way of daily living. At the pick up point, you are greeted by a friendly tour guide with Evergreen chilled water and a brief introduction to the tour.
The drive to the northern part of the island takes about twenty minutes to almost half an hour. At Emua Wharf, you are escorted to your dinghy which is our latest addition along with life jackets and flares for safety requirements. The boat trip to the island takes about ten minutes on fine weather.
At the island you are welcomed by swaying palms, white sandy beach and crystal clear, turquoise waters and serenity sounds of local string band in the background and the biggest smiles you’ll ever see.
Upon stepping ashore, the tour guide gives a brief on your schedule for the day and available facilities on the island. Once you are settled on the beach side and have found your relaxing spot, it’s time to do some snorkelling at a beautiful reef site located hundred meters offshore.
The area from this village on Pele Island to Nguna Island (next door) has officially been a Marine Protected Area since year 2003. Fishing is prohibited in these areas therefore marine life is abundant.
