While New Caledonia is less than a 5 hour plane ride away from Australia, it is like stepping into a whole other world and a surprising one at that, because physically it could not be more any more exotic, however it is a French territory and has a distinct French feel.
Mike and I arrived in Noumea which is considered to be the most westernized capital in the South Pacific. Al Only having 5 days to explore, we chose to visit Isle of Pines, which is only a 25 minute plane ride away.
Isle of Pines is considered as the most beautiful place on earth.
Isle of Pines gets its true name from the fact that it is saturated with pine trees.
Mike and I spent most of time snorkeling and drinking :))))...I know again. We met lots of funny people, and need to admit hot girls. We planned to stay 5 days only but we decided to stay a bit longer cos this place is just a paradise. I would recommend anyone who has a chance to go to pacific islands to visit New Caledonia.
