THE LOYALTY ISLANDS

The Loyalty Islands offer a whole new world to explore, all only a 45 minute domestic flight from Noumea which departs daily. The Loyalty Islands are composed of six islands, each with their own charm and attractions. Lifou is the largest island with immaculate beaches, volcanic cliffs, deep tropical forests, immense caves and a rich history. Ouvéa is one of the most beautiful atolls in the Pacific. It has a single road running alongside a long white sand beachfront, bordered with coconut palms facing the lagoon. Maré has a wild beauty, with deeply carved cliffs, basalt rocks, dark forests, and long undisturbed beaches. Tiga is the smallest of the Loyalty Islands, and can be visited as a day trip from Lifou.
