Malakula island

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Malakula (Malekoula) is a large island in Vanuatu, remarkable only due to its tribal groups. One tribe is peaceful and loves to dance. Another tribe is agressive, and sometimes they can even eat a stranger. However, the last confirmed case of cannibalism was in 1940. There are no good beaches on the island, but it is possible to snorkel almost everywhere. Shore and seabed: stones, sand. [edit]
This island ranks #4 of the "Best Central Outer islands"
