Pacific Island Living

The team behind The Essential Vanuatu

The Essential Vanuatu is brought to you by the same team of talented people that produce and publish Pacific Island Living, the South Pacific's premier lifestyle magazine. In 2017 we celebrate five years of Pacific Island Living. In that short time, we have grown from a magazine for expats and locals living in Vanuatu to a truly regional holiday and lifestyle magazine.

We are now printed in six distinct editions – Vanuatu, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Samoa Airways, Nauru Airlines and Micronesia, plus a retail edition for Australia and New Zealand.

Thanks to our distributors, we’re available in hotels in New Zealand and selected airport lounges, as well as the Emperor Lounge at Auckland Airport. In Australia and SE Asia, we are available at all Qantas Lounges plus 150 hotels from Melbourne to Cairns and selected Virgin Australia airport lounges. Add to that our new website which features an online edition as well as news and reviews, products and competitions for the Pacific.
