Lataro Island, Vanuatu

Situated off the coast of Espiritu Santo, among Vanuatu’s northern islands, this 324-hectare private idyll lay undisturbed by humans for millennia. The pancake-shaped emerald speck is home to old growth rainforest and surrounded by six kilometres of pristine coral reef. It is thought that only a handful of people have explored the reef, which is teeming with fish and live corals.

Some 90 per cent of Lataro is a conservation reserve and it is one of the last refuges for the endangered coconut crab, the world’s largest land-living arthropod. Owls, eagles and parrots also call the island home. As a result of its eco credentials it has been sensitively developed – virtually all electricity is produced by solar power and rainwater is the main water source.

Accommodation has been constructed over the past three years and includes an owner’s residence, split into four buildings: the Balinese-style housing has a large entertainment and dining area, set around a swimming pool, with a media centre and office. There is also accommodation for up to 18 members of staff.

As well as the diving opportunities, the surrounding waters are excellent for fishing. There are several sheltered moorings for boats up to 18 metres and there is a superyacht anchorage in the opposite bay. A piece of land on adjacent Espiritu Santo is also available as an access point or so visitors can land directly on a grass airstrip.

Lataro is currently under a 75-year lease that lasts until 2082. It is available on a walk-in, walk-out basis during this lease period, including boats, water toys and all furniture and equipment.

Lataro Island is listed for sale for $9,995,000 with Vladi Private Islands.
