Located in the southwest Pacific Ocean, New Caledonia is the third largest island in the Pacific. Offering one beautiful beach after the other, here you can immerse yourself in crystal clear turquoise lagoons, and vast open spaces.
New Caledonia is a nature lover’s paradise. Punching well above its weight, the island lays claim to impressive natural features, including the largest lagoon in the world and a 900 mile-long coral reef, second only in size to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
Inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, New Caledonia’s vast coral reef offers some of the most spectacular diving in the world. Not only is it an important nesting site for green turtles, but it also supports an astonishing variety of tropical fish, seabirds, sharks, whales and dugongs, also known as sea cows.
And there is more to this tropical playground…in New Caledonia you find a charming mix of French and Melanesian: warm hospitality sitting beside European elegance, gourmet food beneath palm trees, sand, resorts, and bungalows. The capital, Nouméa is a little piece of France in the Pacific, with its French Riviera atmosphere and its luxury boutiques. With an abundance of mixed cultural influences, New Caledonia blends together heritage, entertainment, and leisure activities. Long beautiful beaches are backed by cafes and bars, with horizons that display tiny islets to attract day trippers. Be lured into kayaks or microlights, rock climb, sail, dive into a world of corals, canyons, caves and shipwrecks, go whale watching or snorkeling, or relax on the warm sand of a deserted isle. Natural wonders and manmade delights are at your fingertips.
