The Pacific Heart
Located just 1200 kilometres east off the coast of Australia, New Caledonia is a special collectivity of France and is surrounded by the world's largest enclosed lagoon. This is a place where Melanesia tradition blends with French sophistication, making it a cultural melting pot and the perfect destination for lovers of all things history, tradition and culture.
This distant land is a land of brilliant contrasts. From coast to coast, New Caledonia is home to some of the most diverse landscapes on earth. Outside the cities you will find picture perfect scenery that ranges from rolling plains and lush river valleys, to cool rainforests and rugged coastlines.
In cities like Noumea you will find interesting cultures and luxurious lifestyles, while islands like Lifou will transport you to a world a million miles away from anything where days spent lazing by the beach are a common occurrence and not a longed-after rarity.
Embark on an adventure of a land unknown and experience it as a local when you explore the relatively untouched island paradises of New Caledonia.
