Top things to do in New Caledonia
New Caledonia is one of the most unique and interesting places to visit in Oceania. If you are looking for a warm tropical climate with fabulous beaches and islands to explore with unique fauna and flora you will find it there. Still, probably because of the remote access New Caledonia remains largely undiscovered by tourists. Most of the travellers are coming from France.
Noumea, the capital city, is by far the most visited tourist destination. Two thirds of New Caledonians live there and it is a lively place, with nice beaches, a selection of resorts and hotels and many quality restaurants. If you were to go no further than Noumea you could still be assured of a great holiday
The next most visited part of New Caledonia is the Isle of Pines. This is a tropical island dream with stunning beaches and warm waters. And the best part – there’s virtually nobody there! Although there are a few places to stay and a small population, if it’s isolation you are after, the Isle of Pines is a great choice.
This diverse province encompasses the northern half of Main Island (La Grande Terre). The west coast is a stock farming region with wide open spaces overlooked by mountains bearing the signs of mining. The northern coastline is rugged but softened with lovely beaches near Poum, Malabou and the Bay of Pam. On the more tropical east coast a major attraction is Hienghène with its beautiful bay, cultural centre and fascinating rock formations. Churches, caves, abandoned mines and the longest river in New Caledonia are other highlights in the Northern Province.
Last but not least, New Caledonia is considered one of the best scubadiving locations in the Pacific, and snorkelling is also excellent.
