  • Noumea bay

    Nouméa, a cosmopolitan capital

    On leaving the cruise ship at the ferry terminal, which is less than 200m from the city centre, passengers can find everything they need (tourist office, foreign exchange booth, tour operators and post office) to head off and explore New Caledonia's capital: Noumea. This French seaside town, founded in 1854, mixes the relaxed Pacific lifestyle with urban vitality. Whilst its numerous beaches and islets invite you to relax and take part in many nautical activities, its city centre and bays are home to all the pleasures of modern life, with a plethora of shops, cafés, bars and fine restaurants. And then there's the city to explore, offering a combination of tradition and modernity with a significant colonial heritage, several contemporary buildings devoted to Kanak culture, and various leisure attractions.

  • Isle of pines in New Caledonia

    The Isle of Pines, idyllic beaches

    From the moment they first arrive in Kuto bay, every cruise passenger is stunned by the natural beauty of the place. The Isle of Pines is an untouched jewel, a true paradise on earth. Its lush interior of columnar pines and coconut palms gives way to long, fine white sand beaches, which merge into the crystal-clear turquoise waters. This is the picture postcard setting where visitors receive a warm welcome from the local people, with traditional songs and dances and a host of activities, goods and produce available for purchase. This is the starting point for cruise passengers to explore the whole island and the mysteries it holds: scuba diving & snorkelling to explore the extensive underwater fauna, cultural trips, an island tour by boat to explore its bays and so much more.

  • Lifou loyalty islands in New Caledonia

    Lifou, in the heart of the Kanak world

    Lifou, known as Drehu in the Kanak language, offers far more than just magnificent scenery as the whole population come together to give their best to their visitors. And yet this large coral island's natural setting alone would have more than enough to satisfy the most demanding of tourists, with the turquoise waters of its glorious bays, impressive cliffs, lush tropical forests and immense caves. It's far from folklore; direct contact with the tribal inhabitants allows cruise passengers to enter the Kanak soul and the vitality of the custom that lies at the heart of their way of life, their arts and knowledge. Don't miss this opportunity to see the famous Wetr group with their traditional songs and dances, find out exactly how the locally-grown vanilla is cultivated, dive on one of the world's richest reefs, teeming with life, or enjoy their culinary delights and craft work.

  • Mare loyalty islands in New Caledonia

    Maré, a wild beauty

    Maré, know as Nengone in the Kanak language, is the new, up-and-coming port of call in New Caledonia. This incredible coral atoll, emerging up out of the water through the telluric activity of the Pacific Ocean, and surrounded by huge cliffs (up to 130 m high) is in fact attracting more and more cruise passengers. Its spectacular wild beauty is combined with the hospitality of its inhabitants, for whom the warm reception of passengers is a vital economic gift. Its massive stone walls, its breathtaking waterholes, and its deserted beaches, all contribute to give cruise passengers the feeling they've entered the garden of Eden, cut off from the world, with any worries left far behind.
