New-Caledonia is a gorgeous island inhabited by Pacific Melanesian and Polynesian populations since thousand of years. Today these two cultures are alive in the local social way of life. The Melanesian local authority applies through tribal chieftaincies. New-Caledonia island owns the second largest worldwide lagoon which merits more than an ordinary visit ! You can find outstanding marine and under sea landscapes around plenty of gorgeous islands. Sailing the lagoon from July to September allows to see Humpback whales that come every year for breeding.
