New Caledonia Water Sports

A great place to practice or learn a new water sport is on a holiday in New Caledonia. This island nation is renowned for many water sports, in particular sailing and scuba diving.

With its perfect weather, New Caledonia offers such a range of water sports that you will be kept busy from morning to night. Get yourself a map of New Caledonia and explore the waters around this South Pacific Island on a cruise, or by chartering a yacht.

The lagoon surrounding Noumea is the largest in the world. Learn to sail in these calm waters. Go kite surfing or sailboarding. Not so active? Then take a gentle swim from one of the pristine beaches that abound on all the islands.

Try paragliding over the blue ocean, or follow in the local custom and enjoy an invigorating sail in an outrigger canoe.

Take a diving holiday in New Caledonia! Bring your own tank or hire one from one of the many local companies. Explore the coral reefs and come face-to-face with the many reef fish. Take an ocean walk or view the coral from a glass-bottomed boat. The Loyalty Islands are the best region to view the coral without a boat.

Learn to wakeboard or water ski in the calm waters of the Sainte-Marie islets. Windsurf in Kuto Bay at the Isle of Pines or in the lagoon off Anse Vata.

Whale watching in season, fishing or even fish feeding are other great water activities waiting for you at beautiful New Caledonia.
