New Caledonia Vacation Information
The Rocket Guide to New Caledonia is a virtual new caledonia map ( or carte nouvelle caledonie ) that shows all of New Caledonia from space. But the CD Rom travel guide to New Caledonia is far more than just a map. It is a virtual atlas of tourism information about New Caledonia with over 700 tourism features located precisely on the satellite and aerial images.

It's not easy to plan new caledonia vacations - especially for people who don't speak French.
Setting up new caledonia holidays is confusing because the majority of websites about New Caledonia are in French and those which are not tend to concentrate solely on noumea new caledonia - and especially hotels in Anse Vata noumea new caledonia. Travel to new caledonia begins with finding out about flights to new caledonia and then, if the traveller wants to go beyond Noumea, also finding out about domestic flights in New Caledonia. New Caledonia visas are not required for most tourists, but it's best to check to be sure because travellers from some countries (like the US) - can only stay in New Caledonia for 30 days without getting a tourist visa before arriving.
The first step in planning a New Caledonia Vacation is deciding what KIND of a vacation you would like. There are several possibilities.
Anse Vata, in Noumea, is the International travel centre of New Caledonia. This is where you'll find the big Noumea hotels and resorts, fine restaurants, and a zillion things to do. Within a very small area - you can stroll along the waterfront promenade from Le Meridien to Le Mocambo in about 15 minutes and within this area are all the major hotels, all the New Caledonia conference venues, the majority of the New Caledonia restaurants, the best beaches, the Aquarium, shopping malls, Noumea weddings coordinators, new caledonia tours agencies, and casinos.
The guide is expanded and improved each year so the information is always up to date. This is especially important because of advances in photography - with amazing virtual reality sphere images of New Caledonia hotel rooms The latest images are also on Google Earth, you can see them in context on the following sites:
Noumea is also the gateway to the world's largest lagoon and second largest Barrier Reef.
But there is so much more to New Caledonia than Noumea and any visitor to New Caledonia should consider a short 20 minute domestic flight to the Ile des Pins (Isle of Pines). Isle of Pines New Caledonia hotels, resorts and other accommodation range from very expensive to camping. The Rocket Guide to New Caledonia shows all the accommodation of Isle of Pines on high resolution photographs, both from the air and on the ground - including 3D virtual reality tours of many of the resorts.
The Loyalty Islands are only a 40 minute domestic flight from Magenta airport in Noumea. There are three Loyalty Islands, Ouvea, Lifou, and Mare. Lifou is actually larger than the island of Tahiti and has only a couple of thousand people living on it. These are great holiday destinations and well worth a visit.
One excellent and relatively inexpensive way to discover vanuatu is Fly/Drive New Caledonia holidays essentially a round the island tour of Grande Terre - where the first stop is a new caledonia car rental agency. Or perhaps a new caledonia tours agency to arrange a round-the-island safari.
