This often overlooked South Pacific archipelago boasts a wealth of picturesque beaches and a breathtaking 24,000-sq km lagoon - the world’s largest - encircled by one of the longest coral reefs on the planet: a haven of biodiversity, home to a kaleidoscopic array of unique marine life.
Such aquatic treasures make New Caledonia a paradise for diving and snorkeling, whilst on land, visitors can enjoy the tranquility of the paradisaical beaches, explore the cultural and historical sights, and experience the country’s unique gastronomic scene.
Set in the heart of Grande Terre, on the edge of the vibrant capital city of Nouméa and just steps away from one of the island’s most picturesque beaches, the five-star Le Méridien Nouméa Resort & Spa combines French elegance with Pacific Island hospitality, and features a beautiful selection of rooms, numerous eateries, a spa and outdoor pool.
There are no direct flights from the UK to New Caledonia. The easiest routes are via either Tokyo or Sydney with British Airways, and then on to Noumea with Aircalin.
May, June, September & October are the best months to visit as they are dry and avoid peak tourism season.
We recommend a minimum of 5 days.
As New Caledonia is a dependent territory of France, UK citizens currently do not require a visa to enter the country.

These clustered islands are full of attraction ranging from volcano peaks to picturesque coral reefs, exotic waterfalls, and dense rainforest.
East Africa's answer to the Caribbean, renowned for remote palm fringed waters and a sense of calm often missed in tourist hotspots.
