Grande Terre island

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Grande Terre - the biggest and most interesting island of New Caledonia. Most tourists arrive and just stay here for the whole period of holiday. It makes sense, as island has the best beaches and the most beautiful scenery in the region. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #19 of the "Best islands in Oceania"

Hotels [edit]

Most hotels on the island are located in the capital Noumea town. However, you can rent a room almost on the entire coast of the island. In general, the level of prices is not cheap.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Noumea International Airport (NOU).

When to go [edit]

Any time of the year. There are no explicit rainy season in New Caledonia, and weather is comfortable and warm during the whole year. If you are interested in a beach holiday, it is better to avoid the period from June to November, because sea water is too cold this time.
