Family trip in New Caledonia
In New Caledonia, the great outdoors are all important. “The Pebble” (as the island is affectionately nicknamed) is a land of cultural heritage, exploration and discovery, very much enjoyed by families. From the banks of Netcha River to the Amédée Lighthouse and the rugged coastline of Hienghene, you will enjoy a plethora of family-oriented activities. Mountain biking, hiking, swimming, kayaking, sailing in New Caledonia and more: just take your pick and have an amazing time!
Best place for a family
New Caledonia is similar to an epic-size playground. In the south, several infrastructures have been thought up to provide you with thrilling experiences. You will enjoy classical activities such as biking, kayaking, hiking, camping, etc. But you will also discover unique and somewhat singular activities such as Plum’arbre. Basically, you will spend a night sleeping above ground, gently rocked as the trees sway in the wind. In New Caledonia’s South Province, four different locations feature Plum’arbre.

The spirit of the bush
If you want to immerse yourself in the “Broussard” lifestyle, do not hesitate to visit a farm. The Bienvenue à la ferme network counts about forty farmers who gladly open up their farms to visitors. Discover and learn about the authentic Caledonian rural way of life. Children will love getting close to the animals and participating in activities specifically thought up for them.
An original journey
In the North of Grande Terre (especially on the east coast), choose to stay in a guesthouse or with a host in a tribe: two great ways to fully enjoy your family trip. From prawn fishing to traditional weaving, from discovering the tribal way of life in Hienghene to cruising on a raft in Poindimié, you will experience incredible nature-oriented escapades.
A gateaway in Paradise
If you are tempted by the lagoon, rent a boat fitted for a family outing and head to the surrounding isles and islets. With or without a skipper, an escapade on the lagoon will assuredly leave you with great memories to share with your loved ones. The Loyalty Islands are particularly suitable for families. Kids will love the freedom of safely running along beaches and trails.
All-tastes like accomodation
New Caledonia offers a wide array of accommodation options for families. From staying in a tribe to 5-star hotels, possibilities are endless! If you want to feel like you’re at home, several lodges and furnished apartments are also available throughout Grande Terre and the islands.
