Map of The Pacific Islands, New Caledonia.

New Caledonia

New Caledonia was given its Latin name for Scotland by the British navigator James Cook, who sighted the island in 1774.

Map of New Caledonia

An overseas territory of France, New Caledonia has a few dependencies of its own.

These are: the Loyalty Islands, east of New Caledonia; the Isle of Pines, to the south-east; the Chesterfield Islands, to the west; and the Huon Islands, to the north-west.

Who Goes There?

You could, if it's on your stop-over itinerary to Australia.

Don't Just Stay by the Pool!

It's surprising how many people are content to soak up the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the French-style cafe society in the capital, Noumea, without looking around the rest of the island.

Visiting local villages and eating something new is what New Caledonia is about; if you make the effort to tour the island.
