Swimming in the rivers of New Caledonia in the heat of a mid-summer day is right there next to paradise. The Riviere Bleue de Prony is on the famous GRNC-1 trek that goes from the southern end of Grande Terre all the way to Noumea (and some day all the way to the northern end of the island). This Olympic sized swimming hole (a full 70 meters long) is a perfect place to sploosh in and feel the sun-heat sizzle away. The water is clear and cool, and you can get yourself into the fastest part of the current and swim until your arms drop off without going anywhere. Kind of like an aquatic treadmill. Or you can jump into the bubbles and drift off in the champaign-like tickle. The pool is just a 10 minute pleasant walk from the Carenage Anchorage in Baie de Prony.

This sphere image was taken with an itsy-bitsy tiny little GoPro Hero3 Black edition camera stuck on the end of my walking stick and held over my head on the big rock you see when you look straight down.

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。
