Cascade de la Riviere du Kaoris, Prony New Caledonia
New Caledonia

The Riviere du Kaoris is one of the few watersheads on the planet without any human settlements. The mouth of the river empties into the Carénage anchorage at Baie de Prony and is lined with mangroves. The water in the river mouth is much clearer than in any other I've seen. It's a short dinghy ride up the river to the cascades and here the water is crystal clear and except for old mining roads that make for excellent walking there isn't a single trace of humanity. For details on this remarkable location see the Cruising Guide to New Caledonia.

Mer om 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.
