Free diving in New Caledonia - Plongée en Apnée Nouvelle Calédonie
Noumea

Free diving in New Caledonia - called Plongée en Apnée in French - is one of the most popular watersports at l'Escapade Island Resort on Ilot Maitre. The coral reef is shallow - from half a metre to 5 metres deep - with a luxurient growth of live corals and lots of tropical fish. Because the reef is part of one of New Caledonia's oldest marine reserves the fish allow divers to approach close enough to get good underwater pictures.

    More About Noumea

    Noumea is the capital and vacation centre of the Islands of New Caledonia in the South Pacific. Noumea is a "French" city, but the 91,000 inhabitants are a very mixed cultural group with French, Melanesian, Polynesian, Indonesian, Vietnamese, and lots of mixtures of these. Over 60% of the population of New Caledonia lives in Noumea.Noumea is a peninsula on the southwestern end of Grande Terre and the central business district (Centre Ville) is next to one of the best natural harbours in the South Pacific. The lagoon side of the peninsula has two picturesque bays with white sand beaches and is called Anse Vata and Baie des Citrons. These twin bays are the international tourism capital of New Caledonia with hotels, restaurants and bars on the landward side of "La Promenade".First settled by the French in 1854, Noumea retains close political ties with France. It has excellent schools and public facilities - parks, recreation areas, exercise paths, schools and medical facilities. Today it is the fastest growing city in the South Pacific. There are 23 hotels in Noumea ranging from one to five stars and over 100 Restaurants.
