New Caledonia Travel Recommendations
Our team is brimming with suggestions to create a unique and unforgettable itinerary for you. New Caledonia is comprised of the main island Grand Terre, The Isle of Pines, the Loyalty Islands, and Belep Islands.
Ouvéa in the north claims the title of “the closest island to paradise,” but the Isle of Pines, or l'Île des Pins, is so arresting in its beauty it became known as “the other island closest to paradise”.
The Loyalty Islands also offer picture-perfect landscapes and lush vegetation set on an impossibly gorgeous lagoon.
Lifou is the ultimate vanilla heaven! The island is one solid paradise made up of sparkling waters and tranquil, uncrowded beaches but Lifou’s top claim to fame is its vast vanilla plantations.
Noumea is a beautiful coastal city. Enjoy French cuisine, relax on beaches shaded by palm trees and party in Lemon Bay’s numerous bars and nightlife.
Get lost on the North coast and meet with the Kanak culture. Rent a car to explore the harder to reach destinations in the New Caledonian Outback. The Loyalty Islands and the Isle of Pines also remain largely traditional outside the resorts.
New Caledonia is an adventure lover’s playground with water sports, diving, snorkelling, sailing, surfing, hiking and more! You can also enjoy a round at one of the three exceptional 18-hole golf courses located at the Sheraton New Caledonia Deva Resort & Spa.
For a change of scene, go south! At the southern end of the main island, the oxidized metal rich soils of the Deep South change the colour palette to red, creating landscapes any Jurassic Park fan would love.
For the romantics, views of the Heart of Voh by scenic flight is a must. Set in four acres of mangrove near to the city of Kone, the perfectly-shaped heart is a unique vegetation formation.
