7 Awesome Reasons Why You Should Travel to New Caledonia


My travel bucket list was never overly ambitious, and it included some of the most obvious places in the world – Paris , Hawaii, Bahamas, etc. but as I was crossing out all of them, I have realized that I needed something different – a destination still unspoiled by numerous luxurious retreats and curious tourists. My search has ended at a small piece of heaven in the middle of Oceania – New Caledonia. It was everything one could ever dream of, and if that’s not enough for you, here are 7 awesome reasons why you should visit too.

1. The Blend of Cultures

First, and foremost, I love traveling because it enables me to get to know different cultures and ways of life. Well, in New Caledonia, I had the opportunity to do this not once, but twice. This archipelago is a unique blend of Melanesian and French culture, which can be seen in their architecture, cuisine and the way of life.

2. The Cuisine

Since I’ve already mentioned the cuisine, I must elaborate my falling in love with New Caledonian food. It helped that I had already adored French cuisine, but when I tried some of the traditional French dishes with the addition of tropical fruits and unique seasonings, I was in it for life. As expected, the wines are sublime, as well.

  1. New Caledonia has nothing to do with Malaysia. It’s a blend of native Melanesian culture with French culture. As for the rest of the article, it does not do credit to the natural beauty of the island. I’m a native New Caledonian and to see golf courses as a highlight of the archipelago is sad. This reads like a shallow shopping list rather than a real discovery of the area. How long did the author stay in New Caledonia? Hopefully someone else will write a better piece about the island closest to Paradise, as it’s known locally.
