Introduction

Espiritu Santo, or just Santo, is the largest island of the Vanuatu island group in the Pacific Ocean. Espiritu Santo was the first island in Vanuatu to be discovered by Europeans, back in 1606 when Portuguese explorer Pedro Fernández de Quirós, saw what he thought to be a southern continent. The island is located in the Sanma Province and covers almost 4,000 square kilometres.
