Noumea in New Caledonia

Stock Photography By Tony Miller

In 1774, James Cook, on board his ship Resolution, discovered a large island in the South Pacific that he named 'New Caledonia', as it reminded him of Scotland. Today, New Caledonia is a country of great contrasts, combining a distinctive Melanesian culture with South Pacific charm and a modern European lifestyle. Outlying islands such as the Isle of Pines and Amadee Island can be reached by sea and air.
