Book flights to Pentecost Island

Pentecost Island is part of the South Pacific nation of Vanuatu, located roughly 120 miles north of the capital, Port Vila. The island is known for its dramatic volcanic landscapes, with its central mountain ridge reaching up to nearly 3,100 feet. The island is lush and green, with cascading waterfalls and fertile valleys.

Pentecost Island is most famous for its Pentecost land diving ritual, also known as Nagol. This daring fertility ritual involves men jumping from towers up to 80 feet tall with only vines tied to their ankles. The ritual is performed between April and June and is said to have inspired modern bungee jumping. Besides the land diving, Pentecost offers visitors a chance to experience traditional Ni-Vanuatu culture, explore hidden waterfalls, and trek through the rainforests.
