Charter Destination New Caledonia

Share this page

A French territory with one of the world’s largest lagoons and an enormous barrier reef, the South Pacific archipelago of New Caledonia offers exceptional scuba-diving.

Influenced by French traditions from its colonial past and set against a backdrop of outstanding natural diversity, this stunning destination is a delight to the senses.

The New Caledonia Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to many species of indigenous sea life and coral, stretches some 1500km, encasing Ile des Pins and other islets. Providing a multitude of protected and secluded anchorages, most of these stunning isles are uninhabited.

New Caledonia weaves a rich tapestry of culture thanks to its location and colonial past; the native Kanaks preserve this heritage with tributes through music, dance, art and sculpture. The French influence is very much alive today in both language and food. In the capital Noumea, the colonial buildings and Kanak architecture are ubiquitous, while local markets are a delightful fusion of east meets west.

Expect colourful French cuisine with a tropical influence when dining ashore – lovingly prepared and beautifully presented. French cheese and wine are readily available together with intensely flavoursome locally grown fruit and vegetables – ideal for your dedicated onboard chef to prepare a wonderful variety of sensational dishes.

Offering a perfect combination of amazing landscapes, exceptional cruising areas and superb hospitality – New Caledonia is the perfect destination for your next yacht charter adventure.
