I was fortunate enough to go on a trip to Vanuatu in 2016 and I’m still not over it.
The islands of Vanuatu aren’t necessary the number one tourist pick in the South Pacific (for now) but that what makes them such a gem in this age of overexposed tropical hotspots.
Here are the reasons why I think you need to go see the blue holes for yourself…
No filter necessary
All my pictures were taken on the camera of a Windows phone and an iphone 5.
The fact they came out looking this beautiful says a lot about just how amazing the blue holes are.
The RiRi blue hole was actually ethereal as it glowed up at us. I’m still floored by it every time I look at my pictures.
Nature at it’s finest makes you feel zen AF
Nothing helps calm the soul like standing in beautiful blue water whilst basking in the blissful peace and quiet you just can’t get back home.
We basically had the Matevulu blue hole all to ourselves and it was literally glorious.
Obviously we have to share amazing places with the rest of the world and other tourists might be there too.
But isn’t it all about the moments when it really is just you and your fave enjoying this beautiful slice of heaven without another human ruining the moment?
Any time i’m stressing out i visualize being back at the blue holes and it works wonders each time.
You get to take pictures like this
Obviously, we are all a little bit conscious about the fact we wanna get the best picture to feed back the moment to friends and family.
Because you don’t have to share the moment with too many other people there is no limit of time to stop and have a little photoshoot in order to guarantee your picture is fleeky.
If I could swim and had a drone, the pics would probably have gone up a notch but I kinda love them as they are.
Plus you can make amazing rope swing videos like this too…
