The island of Pentecôte is located in the middle of the archipelago, in the Penama province. This island is really hilly, roads are high so that you can enjoy a good view of the sea. This island is one of the nicest. Former Prime Minister Maxime Carlot Korman claimed that the Benji jumping has been invented there, according to the Gol Legend. Every year, custom Gol jumps are organised (by Tour Operators also...). If you are in Vanuatu at the good period, don't miss them!
