• A soothing coastline

Like a precious jewel embedded in the natural treasure of New Caledonia, the Leeward Coast reveals

itself as a delicate setting sheltering extremely fragile ecosystems. The beaches offer a resourceful

space where all thoughts fade away to the rhythm of the waves. The coastal contours of this region

The West Coast bears within itself the deep traces of a captivating past to which the colonial remains of lighthouses and historic buildings bear witness.

unique story. In this encounter between past and present, it is much more than a destination. It is an
