New Caledonia is well known for its palm filled beaches, beautiful lagoons, and a barrier reef teeming with aquatic life. Being a French territory, it also has an interesting history and culture highlighted by different museums and sites throughout the islands. And with its relative proximity to Australia’s east coast, this has become a popular holiday destination for all ages and the entire family.
There are a lot of exciting activities for both younger and older kids in New Caledonia. Below are some of the more popular youth activities while on the islands.
Snorkelling in New Caledonia
This should be a given. With the beautiful waters, clear view, and abundant marine life, snorkelling is one of the most popular youth activities in New Caledonia (External link) . It is a great adventure to appreciate the natural beauty of the islands and its capital Noumea.
Younger kids can enjoy snorkelling in the warm, shallow waters of the lagoons while older kids can be a bit more adventurous and discover colourful marine life of the ocean. Parents can sit back and relax on white powder sand of the beach.
Touring the Far South of New Caledonia Island
To the south of the islands are several interesting sites such as Medeleine Falls, Prony Bay, Yate Lake with its dam, an old nickel mine, and a UNESCO World Heritage site known as the South Lagoon. All of these can be toured and visited.
There are guided tours (External link) available in order to explore the different sights down south. This is a great adventure for any age but is particularly good for kids as they can get up close and personal with nature and its wonders.
Helicopter tours (External link) are also available which is a unique and exciting way to tour the southern regions which kids of any age will surely enjoy.
Sailing the Islands
New Caledonia is composed of several different islands clustered together in a relatively small space. One of the best ways to explore the different islands is by sailing going from one island to another in order to take in the best sights the region has to offer.
Kids of all ages will surely enjoy seeing the colours and sights that the islands can offer. They can also try swimming in a new and different spot from each island visited through sailing.
