About Urelapa Island

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

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

Urelapa is located just South of the large island of 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 centres 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, inhabited
• 800 m ex grass airstrip (currently not usable as it needs to be cleared)
• 4+ hectares inland fresh water lagoon – possible marina
• 1,000+ metres 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 potential or exclusive private residential property
• Pristine coral reef and marine life

In December 2003, a group of international scientists have 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.

A preliminary resort & marina concept is available, of which some sketches are viewable here. The concept includes a marina pontoon on the ocean side and a lake pontoon on the opposite side, beautifully stretching between the two body of water and perfectly blending with nature. The central building includes a restaurant & bar, a spa well-being centre and several bedrooms. The 3 bedroom beach bungalows over two levels are nicely scattered along the coast for seclusion and privacy.

Urelapa is truly ideal for a professional tourism development as well as an incredibly unique opportunity for a private retreat.

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.
