Silversea Luxury Cruises To Lenakel, Tanna Island

Lenakel, Tanna Island

The largest town on the island of Tanna, Lenakel has traditionally been the first place visitors to the island see. And what a sight it is. Translucent aquamarine waters lap gently at sugar white sands, which are dotted with a few off ground bungalows. And this is the main city! Located on the west coast of the island, the island’s easy port of entry made it a natural choice for the capital, and there was a time in the 19th century when this was the case. View more

This was in the island’s heady days of colonialisation, when the British arrived (and quickly departed) after unsuccessful attempts to grown cotton. The capital was then changed to Isangel – less than two kilometres away – leaving Leankel with the largest population (today this is over 1,500 inhabitants, 46% of which is under 15). Thus Lenakel is a feast for the eyes and ears. Long sweeping bays, dotted with tall, skinny coconut trees stretch on for forever, while tropical birds provide a very pleasant chirruping soundtrack. Mount Yasur, the island’s active volcano, hovers 361 metres high in the background. If you are feeling adventurous, a hike up its sides to see the 400 metre crater is spectacular. If you do not want to leave the paradisiacal shores, venture inland, where you’ll find tradition is the name of the game in Lenakel. “Kastom” – loosely translated as traditional values and cultures – is strongly revered. A wander to the local market and tasting local “kaikai” (freshly prepared, local island food) is an unmissable experience.
