Vanuatu – Where Love is in the Air (and the Ocean)

WORDS: Phil Hawkes PHOTOGRAPHY Supplied - Eratap Beach Resort

“Love is in the air, in the whisper of the tree
Love is in the air, in the thunder of the sea
And I don’t know if I’m just dreaming…”

 As I recall the song, I wonder if Jean Paul Young had just returned from Vanuatu – which was then known (1977) as the New Hebrides.

If he had been there, it would have been a suitable inspiration for today’s Vanuatu and in particular, a romantic hideaway called Eratap Beach Resort. It’s just 20 minutes from the capital, Port Vila but it might as well be on another planet, away from the town’s hustle and bustle.
