Your Own Offshore Vanuatu Bank

Vanuatu is located half-way between Australia and Hawaii. Visiting Vanuatu is a rare experience. It is discovering the untouched paradise of the South Pacific. It is made up of 83 islands formed in a Y-shaped archipelago which stretches over some 800 miles of the Pacific Ocean. Vanuatu means "the land that has always existed". Vanuatu has rich lush tropical rainforests, volcanoes, sparkling blue lagoons, turquoise blue oceans, cascading waterfalls and beaches that range from silky white to volcanic black. Surrounding the land is a magic sea of aqua and dark blues with a fascinating underwater world of colorful tropical fish that live amongst magnificent coral reef formations. The capital, Port Vila, boasts one of the most beautiful natural harbors in the world. The town offers excellent restaurants, duty free shopping, and a colorful local market.

Sometimes called the "timeless islands", Vanuatu is a land that is never raced, never hurried. It's a gentle, peaceful place where the people and visitors alike can simply take the time to enjoy.
