The Loyalty Islands are only a forty five minute plane ride from Noumea. The islands each have their own charm, but all boast stunning beaches. Ouvéa is beautiful for honeymooners, offering one of the most amazing atolls in the Pacific. There is plenty to do in Ouvéa, such as hiking along the grey Lekiny Cliffs overlooking clear turquoise lagoon waters. The blue hole of Hanawa is also amazing and worthy of a visit. Lifou is the largest of the Loyalty Islands, with volcanic cliffs and deep tropical forest. Be sure to take a swim from the Cliffs of Jokin. Drehu Village is a three-star hotel located on Chateaubriand Bay, conveniently close to Lifou's main town, with bungalows that offer every convenience for a dream stay in an idyllic setting. The island of Maré has a wild beauty and long beaches and is known for its sinkholes in Troude Bone and Le Bone De Leproserie.
