Holiday In New Caledonia

Hey, you—sitting over there daydreaming about tropical escapes. Isn’t it time you made those daydreams a reality? 

Stop fantasising and start booking, because that dream getaway is closer than you think. New Caledonia is sitting pretty in the South Pacific, and it’s ready to show you fantastic seafood, high-end shopping and some of the most beautiful oceanscapes you’ll ever see. Isn’t it time you sat on a distant beach with a cool cocktail in hand? A New Caledonia holiday from lastminute.co.nz will let you do exactly that and more.

Things to Do in New Caledonia

We hope you’re not afraid of the ocean, because this is an island, and islands are surrounded by water. See what it’s like to explore under the sea when you join a scuba expedition. The colourful coral reefs play home to fish species like crown-of-thorns starfish, high-finned dragonet and New Caledonian stingaree. Check with the hotel you got in your New Caledonia holiday package to see if they have deals on scuba.

When you feel like you’ve had enough of the underwater world, get back to dry land and look into lastminute.co.nz’s awesome New Caledonia car hire options. Book one so you can make the 8-km drive from the capital city of Noumea to see the impressive hut pavilions of the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

If you’re staying in the Noumea during your New Caledonia holiday, the Galerie Commerciale Port Plaisance is a great place to blow a stack of CFP francs. You can pick up high fashion pieces from the hottest French companies or locally made items from New Caledonian merchants. Your lady friends back home will love a new, brightly coloured sarong to wrap around themselves.

When you want to squash the hunger pangs, head over to the Noumea Morning Market, located at the marina at Port Moselle. Get your hands on some of the freshest produce in the area and then make your way through the fish market, where vendors sell everything from ahi tuna steaks to full lobsters. Looking for a more traditional sit-down restaurant experience? Many of the resorts in town offer great dining experiences with unbeatable ocean views.

Now, we know you’ve been wanting to know what the nightlife on this island is all about, so keep reading. There’s no better way to balance out a belly full of fresh seafood than with a beer from Brasserie Le Froid Brewery in a local bar. You can also snag a stiffer cocktail at one of the all-night discos. You’ll be surprised at how sweet your feet are while world music seeps from the speakers.

What’s Next

That turquoise water surrounding this tropical rock is mighty appealing, isn’t it? It’s tugging at you like a magnet pulls at a paper clip. Browse lastminute.co.nz’s great selection of New Caledonia holiday deals and book a trip today because let’s face it, home can get a little boring. Our New Caledonia packages will save you a nice chunk of change, so don’t wait any longer and book one now!
