New Caledonia

Land of Eternal Spring

A tropical Parisian paradise with natural beauty, amazing landscapes, dazzling lagoon, coral reefs, marine life, stunning beaches, waterfalls, fauna and flora.

New Caledonia is a tiny dependent territory of France, comprising dozens of islands in the South Pacific – the main island, Grande Terre, the Loyalty Islands, and several smaller islands. It is located east of Australia and north of New Zealand in the South Pacific.

New Caledonia is renowned for its rich biodiversity, and marine-life-rich lagoon which is ideal for snorkeling, kayaking, whale-watching and diving. It also features picturesque lakes, bush-land, spectacular waterfalls and long and deserted palm fringed beaches.

Throughout the country there is a distinctive blend of authentic Melanesian tradition and French sophistication. Melanesian tradition can be seen in the country’s architecture, arts, crafts and hospitality. This combines with a distinct French influence, creating a European style and elegance to create a truly unforgettable experience.

Noumea, the capital is on the main island of Grand Terre, a major scuba-diving destination. Noumea is home to the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre which showcases Kanak heritage; the Musée de Nouvelle-Calédonie with Pacific exhibits; and the Aquarium des Lagons. It has French-influenced restaurants and luxury boutiques selling Parisian fashions.
