Loyalty Islands

(750+ reviews from 5 attractions)
Nature Beaches
Just east of Grand Terre, and running parallel with it, lie Loyalty Islands. Consisting of Ouvéa, Lifou, Maré, and a number of smaller islands nearby, the archipelago features unique attractions on each of the main islands. At Ouvéa the pristine white beach stretches as far as the eye can see--28 km (17.4 mi) in total--gently lapped by the waves of the turquoise lagoon. Lifou rises out of the water on sheer cliffs, hiding secret caves, secluded beaches, and coral reefs. Meanwhile, mysterious pools and pits plunge into Maré's fossil coral rock, and caves honeycomb the island. Sparsely populated, Loyalty Islands have nevertheless incorporated many modern conveniences into the traditional lifestyle here, including an ATM at the bank on each island. You do have to reserve any catered meals 24 hours in advance, but the local crab or lobster platters are well worth the effort. Add Loyalty Islands and other destinations to your itinerary using our New Caledonia vacation planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
