Waterfall New Caledonia Pepite Rivier Prony
New Caledonia

Pepite River is the smallest of 4 rivers that empty into the Baie du Carenage in Prony. It is a "cute" little river that flows all year long, clear and fresh.

This sphere image is the lowest of a series from the start of the river down through the tumbling cascades to the sea. From here it is only a short walk along a small path by the river to the Baie du Carenage. Cruising sailors can bring their dinghy right up into the entrance of this river during high tide and get fresh water, bathe and wash their laundry. This is one of hundreds of excellent anchorages in New Caledonia. See the Cruising Guide to New Caledonia for full information on cruising in 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.
