A LAGOON AND MEN
Fashioned by the sea, the Loyalty Islands offer one of its most beautiful sanctuaries. Registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List, the New Caledonian lagoons, particularly that of Ouvéa, form one of the most varied, most vast, and best-preserved coral ecosystems on the planet. From the sky, the colour blue can be seen in every shade, from the deepest indigo to the purest turquoise, from the softest pastel to the most sparkling azure. At your feet lie kilometres of white-sand beaches with perfect curves. Beneath the surface of the crystal-clear lagoon, divers will marvel at the exceptional, multicoloured fauna, wisely managed by the inhabitants.

Activities around the lagoon
The Loyalty Islands distill a raw purity where nature borders on perfection. Beyond the usual postcards, they are full of little hidden paradises for those who know how to look and get off the beaten track... At the bend of a path in the heart of the forest, you will meet the invisible spirits that inhabit local myths. At the top of a cliff bristling with columnar pines or in the depths of an unfathomable cave, you will evoke the legendary warriors of yesteryear. You will brave vertiginous coral ledges to reach secret and inaccessible beaches.
