Lenakel
Lenakel is essentially a one street town but it has a good range of services including a National Bank of Vanuatu branch, Air Vanuatu office (phone 88667), Customs and Immigration (mainly used by cruising yachts), several well stocked stores (some even have wine), a restaurant or two, a market house, a hospital and 24 hour electricity. The Post Office is at Isangel.
Be careful of the water supply in Lenakel. Water is often sourced from the ground and sometimes it is unfit for drinking untreated.

Transport
The airport is 10km north of Lenakel. A taxi into town costs around 1000 Vatu. A shared ride in the back of a truck, or maybe a minibus, is about 200 Vatu —there are always a few vehicles from assorted bungalows and resorts to meet flights from Port Vila (for tourists who have booked airport transfers) and one of these might be going to the place you want to stay. Some of the airport transfers are fairly priced while for others the bungalow owner is making a profit on your transport. You can always ask, negotiate a fare and climb aboard. Public transport out of Lenakel is mostly in the back of a pickup and the roads are quite rough. On weekdays, market trucks go to Lenakel in the morning (around 0800H) and return in the afternoon (around 1400H onwards). The main stop for public transport is at the TAFEA Co-Operative complex at the Northern end of town.
