Destination Information for New Caledonia

The French territory of New Caledonia is made up of dozens of islands in the South Pacific Ocean. With beautiful beaches lined with palm trees and one of the world’s largest lagoons packed with marine life, this is a major destination for scuba-diving fans and travellers looking for the sophistication of Parisian cuisine and shopping in the midst of the Pacific.

The main island of New Caledonia is Grand Terre, which is surrounded by a huge barrier reef and offers unparalleled opportunities for divers to discover a variety of tropical fish, sharks and whales, along with other wildlife, including green turtles. Inland, there’s also a multitude of species to explore, amongst them flying foxes and exotic birds. Besides Grand Terre, New Caledonia also incorporates the archipelago of the Loyalty Islands, the Isle of Pines, one of the only places in the Pacific with trees that were sturdy and tall enough to make masts for ships and many other, smaller islets.
