New Caledonia

New Caledonia, nicknamed “la Kanaky” and “le Caillou,” is a collection of islands located east of Australia, in the southwestern region of the Pacific Ocean. Currently New Caledonia is an overseas territory of France, but moves have been made to gradually get New Caledonia’s government up and running, independently. The largest city, chief port, and capital of New Caledonia is Noumea. According to the latest measurement the estimated population for New Caledonia is over 220 thousand.

With protected pristine waters, amazing white sand beaches, rolling plains, lush rain forests, and beautiful mountains, New Caledonia has a wide and varied geography that makes it interesting and fun. In fact, New Caledonia is home to the second-largest lagoon in the world. Surrounding New Caledonia is a large coral reef that makes for great diving and underwater adventure. Those who would rather stay out of the sun can enjoy the many shopping and dining options in Noumea and other New Caledonia destinations. The Kanak, the locals of the islands, have numerous traditions and practices, some of which are displayed during festivals that tourists can watch.

New Caledonia has a number of destinations for tourists to experience and explore. Luckily, local transportation on the islands comes in many forms. Bikes, car rentals, boating, hiking, yacht charters and air travel are just some of the many local transportation choices available to visitors. Perhaps the best time to visit and explore New Caledonia is during the dry season, from April to November, when the climate is relatively cool at 63-81 degrees Fahrenheit. The wet season, from December to March, is typically hotter than the dry season, although visitors can still expect cool evenings.

To travel to New Caledonia, tourists have to have passports that are valid until at least six months after their visit. Those who plan on visiting the islands for a duration of 30 days or less are not required to have a visa, but a permit must be obtained for longer stays.
