New Caledonia

Cruise to New Caledonia & the South Pacific

Travellers love New Caledonia. And with its beautiful beaches and French charm, it’s easy to see why. 

Lifou features one of the most dramatic landscapes you’ll find in the Pacific Islands. Think long stretches of white sand beach, small coves, soaring palms, limestone caves, grottos and imposing cliffs. Sounds pretty good, right? And Lifou is just as impressive under the water. In fact, Jinek Bay is home to one of the world’s most diverse ranges of coral and more than 2000 fish species.

In Noumea you’ll discover all the flavour and ambience of a bustling, sophisticated provincial French town with the friendly charms, adventure and heavenly climate of the Pacific Islands.

New Caledonia is a marvel of natural and cultural wonders, right in our backyard - and we can’t wait to take you there.

Visiting Ports


Lovely Lifou is rich in cultural experiences. Take a shore tour into a village to meet a local chieftain or discover a spectacular landscape of forests, grottoes, stark cliff faces and hidden beaches. Jinek Bay, one of the Pacific’s best reefs, offers multicoloured fish and coral aplenty to snorkellers and swimmers. READ MORE


The South Pacific’s most cosmopolitan city is also its most French. Take a shore tour and be treated to authentic French crêpes, baguettes, croissants and cheeses. Once you tear yourself away from the table, Noumea is also famed for its gorgeous beaches, beautiful bays and oh-so-chic shops. Ooh la la! READ MORE
