All in New Caledonia


One of the best ways to see the most of New Caledonia’s main island is by hiring a car and venturing on a road trip.

We’ve created a 12-day self-drive itinerary, to guide you on your way. Starting in Nouméa, the itinerary weaves north along the wild and rugged west coast, through New Caledonia’s mountains to the lush and tropical east coast and back down to the country’s capital.

Go snorkeling, meet the locals, hike a mountain trail or two, or perhaps explore the open plains of the west coast and the tropical waterfalls of the east. The open road is yours and adventure awaits.

Fly fishing in New Caledonia means two things: beautiful scenery and big bonefish.

Salt-water fly fishing is growing in popularity, with many anglers now travelling to tropical and exotic locations to find a variety of fish. Surrounded by a 1,600km long coral reef (second largest in the world after Australia's Great Barrier Reef) and boasting the largest lagoon in the world, New Caledonia is perfect for fishing, and fly fishing in particular. The sandflat habitats of the reef and lagoon are said to house some of the largest bonefish in the world.

Learn about the recent Fly Odyssey fly fishing experience in New Caledonia plus all the best tips and spots to know for fly fishing in around the island.
