Travel to New Caledonia

New Caledonia offers an endless variety of landscapes, some of the best white sand beaches in the Pacific, and spectacular mountain retreats to all who choose to visit. It is surrounded by about 1,600 kilometers of a long coral reef , which forms the largest lagoon in the world.

New Caledonia is not of volcanic origin, like the neighboring areas, but it is a fragment of an ancient continent that disappeared about 250 million years ago. As such, its flora and fauna have evolved in isolation, and are now unique. A wide variety of endemic species have emerged throughout the area. New Caledonia is the third largest island in the Pacific region after Papua New Guinea and New Zealand.
It became a French colony in 1853 and French overseas territory in 1946. The indigenous population has tried to break free from French rule on several occasions, including the Kanak rebellion of 1878. Conflicts continue to erupt today, reflecting that citizens do not agree with the self-proclaimed rulers, the French nuclear tests being carried out in the region and other kinds of problems.
