Snails and baguettes in the tropics of New Caledonia

Why go all the way to France when you can pop over to New Caledonia, just a few hours off the East Coast of Australia. Here you’ll find French accents, French cuisine and French sophistication, all mixed with the delights of Melanesian hospitality and a warm tropical breeze. Known as the Pacific Riviera, New Caledonia offers Francophiles the French touch without the jetlag. In Noumea are many wineries, cafes and restaurants that make it a great destination for lovers of fine wine and French gastronomy. You can even take French cooking classes! For romance, pop over to the tranquil Isle des Pins where you can enjoy freshly caught seafood such as lobster from the local fishermen. Be pampered and relax at a luxury resort or get active and kayak around the picturesque bays. For something a little bit different, hop on an outrigger and be taken by the breeze to discover Upi Bay. If you want something even more off the beaten track then an adventure to the Loyalty Islands is for you. You’ll encounter the traditional Karnak people, rugged scenery and freshwater swimming holes in addition to sandy atolls surrounded by clear blue waters perfect for snorkeling and diving. New Caledonia is the perfect destination for those wanting a European culture fix in a warm climate without the major mission to the Med. Make sure you pack your French dictionary along with your swimmers – you might need it! Talk to your TTFN Travel Confidante about a holiday in New Caledonia today. Call +61 8 6382 5000.
