Pentecost island

Ultimate guide 2017
Pentecost is an island in Vanuatu famous for land diving performed by the locals, thus making ancient ritual. Men jump from a height of 20-30 meters, and only natural materials from the jungle are taken for the tower, as well as for ropes. This is a very dangerous tradition, but it was only two deaths known in our times. By the way, all the locals are Christians. Historically, the event was performed only once a year, but now every Saturday. It happened due to the high popularity of the show among the tourists, each paying about US$150. The island has also beaches and other eco attractions, but these are not so interesting. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

When to go [edit]

The best time for a beach holiday in Pentecost island in Vanuatu is a dry period from July to October.

However, keep in mind that jumps occur only from April to June, as this is the only time, when the vines are strong enough and elastic.
