The Independence's Year:



The state is constituted by an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, in southern Melanesia.
Islands are of volcanic origin with beautiful coral fringes and constituted an archipelago of 13 principal islands and many smaller islets . They are placed from North to South for about 700 Km.
The landscape is very good with reliefs alternated at volcanic plateau, sweet hills and sea terraces diminishing toward the ocean, where often you can find submerged coral reefs.
The greatest island is Espiritu Santo, where there is the maximum elevation of the archipelago, the Tabwemasana Mont (1879 meters msl); the capital Port Vila is placed instead on the island Efaté, in the central part of the country.
In the Tanna Island is located the Yasur Volcano, one of the most active in the world, with explosive regular eruptions.
