Founded in 1546 by the Portuguese nobleman and adventures Brás Cubas, Santos shares an unusual distinction. It is one of Brazil's popular seaside resorts and it is also the largest commercial port in Latin America. The old city features classic colonial architecture and a superb botanical Garden. Santos is also your gateway to Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city - and the seventh largest metropolitan zone on Earth.
It was coffee that transformed Santos from a seaside resort into one of the world's great seaports. Today the port still ships a large portion of the world's coffee supply from its docks - in addition to cars, steel, oil, bananas and oranges.
Champagne Bay is located on the north-eastern coast of the island of Espiritu-Santo; the largest island of Vanuatu. Champagne Bay has a beautiful white sand beach, while the nearby Blue Lagoon is a tranquil spot with crystal clear fresh water.
Natives from a nearby village will visit the bay to sell their goods when a ship calls. There is beach volleyball, swimming or island exploration on offer for visitors.
The substantial dock and port area of Port Vila overlooks a natural harbour. There are beautiful coastal views of the city with its clusters of houses and small scale resorts nestled amongst tropical vegetation makes an attractive scene. The harbour is quite active with fishing boats, yachts and speedboats passing between the various nearby islands. The dock bustles with dancers and music and there are lots of friendly locals selling handicrafts. The covered market place is a colourful and interesting place to visit selling handicrafts, fruits and colourful tropical flowers. Port Vila is clearly visible from deck and is around 1.5 kilometres from the port. The capital is really just one long street with a few smaller streets intersecting it. The main street Lini Highway has lots of shops some bars and restaurants. Many of the resort hotels with excellent restaurants and bars are easily accessible.
Tiny Mystery Island is picture perfect, with sandy pathways that lead to white beaches edged with coconut trees and crystal clear lagoons offering great snorkelling. This small, uninhabited island is one of the most southern of the Vanuatu group. Mystery Island was used as a World War II landing strip for the allied forces. There is now absolutely no tourism development except for the occasional visit by our ship. There are no roads, no shops and no stress! The locals from a nearby island will come to sell their few shells and goods and your day may be spent relaxing on the sand while the local band plays songs of welcome. The surrounding reefs offer ideal opportunities for experienced snorkellers.
