More information about Tanna
1. Banyan trees
Tanna is famous for its huge banyan trees. The jungle is rampant in the fertile volcanic soil on Tanna. For locals, the tree is very important. For ceremonies, rites of passage and as housing, some chiefs build their hut even in the tree.
2. Blue cave
Deep in the jungle of Tanna in the ground is a large lake hidden. From the edge of a large crater in the middle of the rainforest is the access to the lake, which is about sixty feet wide at this spot. The lake is part of an extensive system of underwater caves. Sun rays coming through the jungle break through reverberated on the water surface and provide mysterious light spectacle on the crater walls.
3. Port Resolution
Port Resolution – located on the southeast side of Tanna – derived its name from the ship of Captain Cook who anchored here in 1774. The bay is a sheltered harbor for yachts. There is a small village with hot springs. The “locals” cook their food here in the steamy “hotwater pools”, but you can also bathe in lower “pools”, where seawater mixes with the hot water from the springs.
