Visit other tropical island destinations in the world

If you loved Vanuatu, you should add these four island destinations to your travel bucket list. No matter what destination on this list you plan on going to next, you’ll surely remember your time in the beautiful Vanuatu.

A beautiful sand beach in Greece islands
Vanuatu is only one of many tropical island destinations in the world, each offering
a different holiday experience that's unique to that region and varies from Vanuatu.

Mykonos, Greece

Mykonos is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea that’s mostly known for its electrifying party scene. Although not as laidback as Vanuatu, there are several spots on the island where you can have a peaceful day by the sea. Some of the best quiet beaches in Mykonos include Agios Sostis, Fragia Beach, Fokos Beach, Ftelia, and Merchia Beach. You can bring a picnic to any of these beaches and spend a whole summer day swimming or bathing in the sun without the usual Mykonos tourist and party crowds. Alternatively, you can book a room at one of the island’s beachfront hotels so you can stay close to the water during your stay.

Mahé, Seychelles

Seychelles consists of a group of islands in the Indian Ocean. Most, if not all, of these islands are thriving with luscious green forests and beautiful beaches. If it’s your first time in Seychelles, you should visit Mahé, the largest island in the archipelago where the capital, Victoria, is located. When you visit, don’t miss the Morne Seychelles National Park which is home to the highest mountain peak in the country. For beach recommendations, you can spend a day swimming at Beau Vallon (for divers), Anse Intendance (for surfers), and Anse Forbans (for snorkelers).

Boracay Resort beach in the Philippines
The Philippines islands are home to many tropical island destinations,
that offer something different from what you will find in Vanuatu.

Palawan, Philippines

Palawan is a provincial archipelago in the West Philippine Sea. Archaeologists believe that it used to be a land bridge that connects the Philippines to other countries in Southeast Asia. Today, Palawan is one of the most beloved island destinations in the country. It is known for the underground river in Puerto Princesa, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Aside from this breathtaking natural feat, tourists also love Palawan for its smaller islands El Nido and Coron, which are less urbanized and are therefore great getaway spots for those who want a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Rarotonga, Cook Islands

Rarotonga, the largest of the Cook Islands, is a tropical paradise in the South Pacific with white sand beaches, luscious rainforests, and volcanic peaks. Its vibe is very similar to Vanuatu given their similar location. When you visit Rarotonga, you should definitely go beach hopping. The most popular beaches on the island are Muri Beach, Aroa Beach, and Titikaveka Beach. The island also has lively markets where you can buy souvenirs and taste the local cuisine. During your stay, you should go snorkeling to see the diverse marine life in this part of the Pacific. Other spots on Rarotonga that you shouldn’t miss include Te Rua Manga (also called The Needle), Wigmore’s Waterfall, and the Cook Islands National Museum.

Mykonos in Greece, Mahé in Seychelles, Palawan in the Philippines, and Rarotonga in the Cook Islands have the same characteristics as the beautiful tropical paradise that is Vanuatu. Experience the same vacation in a new and exciting destination by going to these places.
