Nemou Island New Caledonia
New Caledonia

Ile Nemou is on the eastern coast of New Caledonia and offers a good, protected anchorage. It is part of a group of islands that form Port Bouquet - only it is not a Port at all with only one tribe of Kanak people living on the southern shore. Ile Nemu itself is uninhabited with nice coral reefs around it and a small sheltered beach.

The island has a stand of Pins Colonnaires, emblematic of New Caledonia. This is an ancient species of plant, endemic to New Caledonia. It reaches a height of 60 metres. For full details of anchoring at Ile Nemu see the Cruising Guide to the Anchorages of New Caledonia.

More About New Caledonia

New Caledonia is the closest South Pacific Island to Australia and New Zealand. It is a French Territory and although the official language is French the culture is a blend of Melanesian, European, Polynesian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Indonesian, and more. There is one large mountainous island called Grande Terre and 6 smaller islands - the three Loyalty Islands, Belep and the Isle of Pines.The islands are remarkably unpopulated and there are vast areas of wilderness. There are hundreds of kilometers of walking treks, camp grounds, more than 42 parks and reserves, and crystal clear rivers with sparkling waterfalls. Almost one third of the population is located in the capital city of Noumea. Nickel mining is the primary industry and is the major contributor to the high standard of living in the country. Grande Terre is surrounded by the second largest barrier reef in the world and the protected lagoon created by this barrier reef is the largest in the world. Listed as a World Heritage Site in 2008, the lagoon is 24,000 square kilometers and supports a diverse and luxuriant fauna of fish and invertebrates.The vibrant, clear and rich colors are one of the first things that visitors notice when they arrive. Noumea has a complete range of hotels, resorts, restaurants, and activities to welcome visitors.
