Lagoons of New Caledonia, France

From series “The Most Interesting UNESCO Sites in France”
The archipelago of New Caledonia is located in the Pacific Ocean. It is a territory of France. It is famous for its amazing natural attractions. One of the three largest coral reefs in the world is located here. Its length is about 1,500 km. It encircles the main island of the archipelago, which is called Grande Terre. The barrier reef has contributed to the formation of the most beautiful lagoons in these places.

The total area of the lagoons that surround the reef is about 24,000 square kilometers. New Caledonia attracts diving enthusiasts from all over the world. They can admire the rarest representatives of the oceanic fauna here. The Great Barrier Reef was home to them. In addition to exotic fish and corals, rare species of sea turtles and large marine mammals are found here. The dugong is among them.

New Caledonia began to attract travelers quite a long time ago. But the islands do not have a developed tourist infrastructure. The main part of tourist attractions is concentrated in the capital of the archipelago – the city of Noumea. The islands are perfect for exploring exotic nature and relaxing beach holidays. In addition to the beautiful lagoons, there are also many interesting attractions here.

There is a beautiful waterfall on the island of Rade du Nord. Its guests can also see the ruins of colonial buildings. The Isle of Pines is notable for its unusual rocky formations. They resemble huge stone mushrooms. Several beautiful caves are located on the island. Amedee Island also has caves. The high lighthouse is located on its territory. A large underwater laboratory was established here. Its employees are engaged in the study of marine life. Guests of the archipelago can enjoy the services of a first-class water sports center. They can train under the guidance of trainers and rent all the necessary equipment there. Those who are not interested in scuba diving will be offered to diversify their leisure time with exciting sea excursions. Next - Episcopal city of Albi
