Amedee Lighthouse Top
New Caledonia

This is the view from the top of the lighthouse at Amedee island in New Caledonia. The lighthouse is a famous landmark and the very best day trip for visitors to Noumea. The 56m high lighthouse was built in Paris in 1862 and began operation on Amedee in 1865. Amedee island is within a special marine reserve in New Caledonia's vast coral reef lagoon. Thousands of visitors take the day trip aboard the MaryD in Noumea to visit the lighthouse and spend a day at the beach. You can take a virtual tour of the island on the Rocket 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.
