About New caledonia

New Caledonia is a special collectivity of France nestled in the southwest Pacific Ocean, covering a total area of 18,576 square kilometers. It comprises a primary island, Grande Terre, and several smaller islands, the Loyalty Islands, the Belep archipelago, and the Isle of Pines. Grande Terre boasts a longitudinal mountain range, creating a diverse ecosystem and microclimates. The region has earned the reputation as a Conservation International-designated biodiversity hotspot due to its remarkable endemism and rich biodiversity. It hosts the world's second-longest double barrier reef, stretching for more than 1,500 kilometers, falling short only to Australia's Great Barrier Reef. With French as the official language, the islands also resonate with the sounds of several indigenous languages. The local culture paints a vibrant mosaic of indigenous Kanak traditions and contemporary French influence. New Caledonia's economy leans heavily on its lucrative nickel mining industry, one of the largest worldwide. Tourism also contributes significantly to the economy, with visitors drawn by the fusion of Melanesian and French cultures, extraordinary biodiversity, picturesque landscapes, and an array of outdoor pursuits such as hiking and diving. Nouméa, the capital, located on the main island, features French-inspired architecture, luxury boutiques, and sandy beaches, juxtaposed with traditional Kanak culture, particularly evident in the Tjibaou Cultural Centre.
