Location of the month: Vanuatu Post office

Definitely one of the world’s most exciting and unusual locations to work in, especially if you are a keen diver! Vanuatu’s underwater post office off Hideaway Island near Port Vila is situated 50 metres offshore and three metres below the surface. You may think that working underwater would be lonely, but this post office has been flooded (excuse the pun) with visitors donning their snorkels, looking to grab a glimpse of the ‘deep blue’ location. With the chance to post one of the special waterproof postcards available in Vanuatu, this incredible office has received an estimated 100,000 visitors since opening in 2003. “I love working at the underwater branch,” says VPL’s Samuel Robert. “It’s great fun and really pleasing to see so many visitors each day who cannot believe their eyes!”
