Vanuatu & New Caledonia - New Caledonia (Chapter)
This is the New Caledonia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Vanuatu & New Caledonia guidebook.
New Caledonia is dazzling. There’s a charming mix of French and Melanesian: warm hospitality sitting beside European elegance, gourmet food beneath palm trees, sand, resorts, bungalows, concrete, bamboo. Natural wonders and manmade delights are at your fingertips.
