A Secret Slice Of Oceanian Paradise

This often overlooked South Pacific archipelago boasts a wealth of picturesque beaches and a breathtaking 24,000-sq km lagoon - the world’s largest - encircled by one of the longest coral reefs on the planet: a haven of biodiversity, home to a kaleidoscopic array of unique marine life.

Such aquatic treasures make New Caledonia a paradise for diving and snorkeling, whilst on land, visitors can enjoy the tranquility of the paradisaical beaches, explore the cultural and historical sights, and experience the country’s unique gastronomic scene.

There are no direct flights from the UK to New Caledonia. The easiest routes are via either Tokyo or Sydney with British Airways, and then on to Noumea with Aircalin.

May, June, September & October are the best months to visit as they are dry and avoid peak tourism season.

We recommend a minimum of 5 days.

As New Caledonia is a dependent territory of France, UK citizens currently do not require a visa to enter the country.
