The best place to stay on Tanna is the White Grass Ocean Resort, who also organize one-day trips to Yasur volcano. If you prefer to stay near the volcano itself, there are many cozy bungalows and home stays in the area.
We personally prefer Kelson's Jungle Oasis which is probably closest to the volcano and has a direct view of the volcano (if you are lucky to get the spectacular tree house), but there are many other good choices as well:Booking.com
