Ilot Signal Marine Reserve New Caledonia
New Caledonia

Ilot Signal, also called Ilot Te Ndu, is part of the Southern Lagoon park, a network of protected marine reserves in the lagoon offshore of Noumea. The name comes from the coral block tower that used as a landmark by ships heading to Noumea in the late 1800s. There is a walking trail around the island, lovely beaches and informational signs describing the flora and the sea birds that nest on the island during their breeding seasons. Be sure to look up to see the sea eagle in the image. For all the relevant information on Ilot Signal see the Nautical cruising guide to 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.
