Ambae Island

Bali Hai from the Tales of the South Pacific

The writer James Michener, an American Army Lieutenant based at Santo during World War II thought Ambae the most beautiful island in the South Pacific.

Legendary as the Bali Hai in Michener’s famous Tales of the South Pacific and sung about in the musical South Pacific, Ambae is a volcanic island often shrouded in cloud due to a high rainfall. In the 1500m high volcano are three craters each containing a freshwater thermal lake and a ready supply of prawns.
