New Caledonia

As small as this island is, it is huge in scenery. From hidden lagoons, crystal clear aquamarine waters, the second largest (and much healthier) barrier reef on the planet, flora and fauna, mountains – just everything is available here  including infamous French cuisine as New Caledonia is a French territory 😉

I will be honest, flying over is not inexpensive and with only one airline essentially running the gamut, expect to pay a little more than the 3.5hr flight justifies – however – the beauty you encounter is unsurpassed and some may say priceless so dig deep and dive in because New Caledonia is the very essence of paradise from the city of Nouméa right into the jungles that surround it!
