New Caledonia is one of the best cruising grounds in the South Pacific for sailing yachts. Frederique and I have cruised these waters since 1980 aboard the Research Vessel Moira, visiting and charting over 140 anchorages for our cruising guide to New Caledonia. We visited just about every practical anchorage throughout the vast lagoon and multitude of islands so other cruisers will be able to cruise in safety and plan their New Caledonia cruise with accurate images and information.

In this sphere image, the Moira is approaching Canal Wooden, created by Ile Ouen and the mountainous southwest extremity of Grande Terre. Like all the waterways of New Caledonia, Canal Wooden is deep and free of dangers so long as you stay over 100 metres off the coastline. We were on our way to the islands of the great southern lagoon to see some whales. We did find six humpback whales the next day but although they played and cavorted quite close to the Moira they did not come close enough to get an acceptable sphere image.

此全景拍摄于新喀里多尼亚

这是一个概述新喀里多尼亚

新喀里多尼亚是离澳大利亚和新西兰最近的南太平洋岛屿。该岛是法国领地且官方语言是法语,尽管如此,其文化却丰富多彩,揉合了美拉尼西亚、欧洲、波利尼西亚、越南、中国、印尼等国的风情。这里有一个多山的大岛,称为大地岛 (Grande Terre),和6个较小的岛屿——洛亚蒂三岛 (Loyalty Islands)、贝莱普群岛 (Belep) 和松树岛 (Isle of Pines)。

整个群岛人口极为稀少,有大片的荒野。这里有数百公里长的徒步小径、随处可见的露营营地、超过42个公园和保护区、清澈透明的河流和莹莹闪光的瀑布。约三分之一的人口居住在首府努美阿。镍的开采是该国最主要的工业,也是维持其高标准生活的主要经济来源。大地岛四周环绕着世界第二大珊瑚礁,此珊瑚礁形成的泻湖是世界上最大的,也是受保护的泻湖。该泻湖于2008年被列为世界遗产,面积达24000平方公里,是品种丰富的鱼类和无脊椎动物栖息之地。

对于刚上岛的游客而言,最引人注目的是这里鲜艳夺目的色彩。努美阿以其完备的酒店、度假酒店、餐馆设施和丰富多彩的活动欢迎游客的到来。
