Urelapa Island for Sale – Vanuatu

  • $5,000,000
Vanuatu, Vanuatu


This is not just another island for sale, Urelapa is a very special gift to Earth in the South Pacific. The island is offering you an incredible coastline of crystal clear water, surf, white sandy beaches, pristine coral reef, a freshwater lake, an airstrip and luscious tropical vegetation.

All of that is just 2.5km off the mainland with a 12 minutes boat ride and about 26 km from the International Pekoa Airport in Luganville.

Urelapa is located just South of the large island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu. This mostly untouched and undeveloped archipelago of 83 islands is conveniently positioned in close proximity to Noumea and Fiji and it is only two or three and a half hours flight from Australia and New Zealand.

Secluded, untouched, pristine and yet so close to main source tourism markets and metropolitan centers in the South Pacific.

The Island in summary:

  • 57 Hectares of Private Island in a friendly tax jurisdiction
  • Approximately 1.7 km long and 700m wide
  • 800 m grass airstrip (currently not usable as it needs to be cleared)
  • 4+ hectares (10+ acres) inland fresh water lagoon – possible marina
  • 1,000+ meters of white sandy beaches
  • Deep water access and mooring possibilities
  • 75 year Commercial Tourism Lease commencing November 2006
  • 35 minute boat ride from Luganville Santo
  • Development for tourism and/or exclusive private residential properties
  • Pristine coral reef and marine life

Ancient Reef

In December 2003, a group of international scientists succeeded in retracing over a 23,000 year period of history of the coral reef surrounding Urelapa. This fossil reef bears the record of the longest continuous growth – 17,000 years – ever studied by scientists.

So Many Possibilities

Urelapa is truly ideal for a professional tourism development as well as an incredibly unique opportunity for a private retreat. Couple the 10+ acre lake with the private airstrip and you have something very special.

Sister Island Available

A smaller island Tuvana (8.8 Ha) is in close proximity of Urelapa, also dotted by sandy beaches and incredible reef and marine life. The purchase of both islands could offer a larger site for development and a smaller one close by, for a private residence.
