With so many activities on offer, a New Caledonia holiday package has something for everyone.
Foodies will find fantastic flavours at the Noumea morning market, where stalls offer everything from tuna steaks to lobsters, along with French classics such as foie gras, cheese and freshly baked baguettes. The gourmet approach continues in the island’s restaurants, with elegant dishes served under a palm tree and long beaches
Water babies only need to look over the lagoon to find their playground: from diving to fishing, snorkeling to swimming and kayaking to sailing, there’s an activity for every interest. Swimmers and snorkelers will love the shelter of Baie des Citrons and La Piscine Naturelle, while kayakers
Land explorers won’t be disappointed: Blue River National Park shelters thousand-year-old kaori trees, while Parc des Grandes Fougères is home to many native bird species, as well as hiking tracks ranging from 45 minutes to six hours.
No New Caledonia holiday package is complete with a trip to neighbouring islands. Visit the Loyalty Islands or Isle of Pines to find Pacific island paradise, with kilometres of white sand, coconut plantations, sensational dive sites and the habitats of native marine life.
Noumea is your best choice for a New Caledonia holiday package, as it’s one of the largest towns in the area. That said, for the ultimate in secluded luxury, look further afield – there are a number of private resorts that will look after your every whim.
The cost of a New Caledonia holiday package is dependent on the level of luxury you’re looking for. While it may have been on the dearer end of the scale in the past, a New Caledonia escape is now comparable to any other South Pacific island.
