On a clear, cloudless day in Noumea, it hard to tell where the deep sapphire ocean ends and the royal blue sky begins. Patches of fluorescent aquamarine water, draw patterns on an otherwise deep blue canvas. In a way, it reflects New Caledonia’s Pacific identity, a patchwork of cultures and traditions. Noumea is situated on Grand Terre, an island that resembles a tropical trumpetfish. Noumea is known for beaches like Baie des Citrons and Anse Vata, surrounded by unending lush greenery. Welcome to ‘The green-blue city’ of Noumea.
Get away to the Island of Pines There are quite a few stunning islands in the close vicinity of Grand Terre and none more so than Pine Islands. You can boat up to the secluded Upi Bay, where undisturbed reefs are inhabited by exotic sea life. Hike up to the summit of N’Ga Peak and enjoy 360 degree vistas of island and sea. For a different kind of sea experience, visit the Piscine Naturelle at Oro Bay. A vast natural saltwater lagoon with placid aquamarine water and a shallow sandy seabed.
No, not the Great Barrier Reef. The New Caledonia reef chain is the longest unbroken barrier reef in the world with a length of 1,600km and its lagoons are the largest too, covering an area of 24,000sq.kms. It also exceeds the Great Barrier Reef for marine diversity. Marine species range from the smallest plankton to the largest sharks. So if you are not the fishbowl type, hire a boat and sail on a wild blue adventure.
