Highlights of this trip was the fact that New Caledonia is so close to New Zealand, and the people speak French.
The food is different, way of life is different, and it's a cultural experience not to be missed, ie Bastille Day in Noumea, petanque on the waterfront, elegant French people walking with their dogs.
Clear water, beautiful scenery.
Best Way To Get Around:
Walking, hire a car. In Noumea, catch the "Little Train". Get on and off where you want.
