100% nature islands
Caledonian islands are strikingly beautiful. Here, people live in harmony with a generous nature: beaches in fine silver sand, steep cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, deep forests, hidden caves and, of course, a lagoon of amazing beauty. You are right in the heart of the perfect picture postcard.
Activities on the islands
Don't think you are going to spend your time on the islands only lazing on the beach! It would be a shame. The locals often act as guides to take you fishing, or snorkeling, or for a trek to the corners that are kept secret by the heart of the forest. Be friendly and open, the islanders will welcome you with open arms.
However, the islands are not asleep. By choosing between staying with a tribe, in a bungalow or a hotel, you will be able to choose how to live your adventure. In Lifou, vanilla is king. Do not hesitate to visit the plantations. The islanders have an almost mystical connection with nature, and they are generous, willingly sharing Kanak myths and legends that have been handed down from generation to generation during trips in caves or forests.
