Halfway between Fiji and Australia, in the heart of the Pacific Ocean, is New Caledonia. This French overseas territory is made of up one major island, called Grand Terre, as well as numerous smaller islands and atolls like the Isle of Pines and the Loyalty Islands. Surrounded by a barrier reef second only in size to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, New Caledonia is a haven for those who love underwater marine life, snorkelling, and scuba diving. The capital, Noumea, is the only true city in New Caledonia, and it is a cultural hub thanks to attractions like the Museum of New Caledonia, the Tjibaou Cultural Centre, and the Maritime History Museum. In Bourail, a smaller coastal farming town on Grand Terre, you can visit 19th century churches or stay active thanks to horseback riding, scuba diving, or spotting sea turtles sunbathing on the sand each afternoon. Hiking up to Ouen Toro Park offers incredible vistas over the city of Noumea, and there are even chartered boat tours that will take you island hopping for a day filled with adventure. Whether your idea of the perfect holiday includes lounging on sunny beaches, exploring underwater shipwrecks, or learn more about indigenous cultures, New Caledonia fits the bill and can offer everything you want in one amazing destination.
