In 2003, Vanuatu Post created an official Post Office with a difference. It is the world’s first Underwater Post Office. The Underwater Post Office is situated within the Hideaway Island marine sanctuary in approximately 3 metres of water, about 50 meters from the shore of the island of Vanuatu.
It is possible for both divers and snorkelers to post special “waterproof postcards”.
Sri Lankan philately youtuber Yasas Gunasekara has made a video in Sinhala to give you the insights to this wonder in the philately world.
