Pentecost Island lies 190 kilometres due north of capital Port Vila and is known as Pentecôte in French and Pentikos in Bislama.

Pentecost Island has become famous throughout the world for the land diving ritual (Nagol or N'gol) which occurs every Saturday between April and June. Visiting and witnessing the the land diving was truly a great experience. No words can express the feeling of the ground vibrating under the dancing and stomping feet of villages and the excitement of sitting beneath the tower waiting with unease for the diver to jump safely to the ground.

We also stayed in Noda Guest house of the Water Village where we tried the very strong "Kava" of the Island, visited the famous Waterfall, and documented the two beautiful women of  the Village if the making of the Traditional "Laplap"..
