Silversea Luxury Cruises A Tanna


Port Resolution is named after Captain Cook’s famous ship and he was the first known western explorer to describe entering the bay. Located on the southeastern shore of Tanna, Port Resolution has a long black sandy beach with hot springs at its western side. The tiny village at its eastern tip has white sand beaches on the seaward side. The black sand is of volcanic origin and towering behind the bay is Mount Yasur, one of the most active volcanoes in Vanuatu. View more

When Cook first approached the island, he was guided by “a great fire upon it,” which was likely an eruption from Mount Yasur. Depending on the strength of its activity, it may be possible to visit the volcano’s rim. The periodic rumbles and the pieces of molten lava being shot out of the volcano are most impressive at dusk.
