Lataro Island, an 800 acre private island located off the coast of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu, is now up for sale. The price is negotiable.

“90% untouched by man. Old growth rainforests, together with a wonderful array of flora and fauna has lain undisturbed for thousands of years. The 6 km of pristine Coral reef surrounding the island is a marine conservation area and teems with beautiful fish and coral life. Only a handful of people have ever dived this spectacular reef and most parts of it have never been explored underwater,” says the description on the Vladi Private Islands web-site.

The luxurious accommodation has been constructed over the last three years and comprises the owners’ residence made up of four separate buildings connected with undercover walkways – these include a kitchen, bar, dining and entertainment area around the swimming pool and media room/office/study and ‘play room’. There is a large two bedroom guesthouse, a self-contained manager/caretakers house, separate staff accommodation for up to eighteen and a huge maintenance shed. The buildings are Balinese style with plenty of exposed timber and dark tinted glass.

There are several safe moorings for boats up to around 60 feet off the front of the property. Super yacht anchorage is in the bay opposite and is visible from the property.

The island is available on a walk-in, walk-out basis including boats, toys and all furniture and equipment. A piece of land on the mainland is also available as an access point although many visitors prefer to fly directly to the island and utilise its own grass airstrip, the sales agent’s description says.

Earlier we have reported that the Castaway Island, also a part of the Vanuatu island chain, is now for sale for almost $US 1.6 million. Private tropical island Castaway features a 500 square meter mansion, and located North of the Santo Island.
