Lifou is the largest of the Loyalty Islands in New Caledonia, and well known for its welcoming atmosphere. As soon as you step off your ship, you’ll be greeted by vibrant marketplaces selling all kinds of goods including tropical fruits. Escape from the town and you’ll find stretching white sands, perfect for a tranquil day spent relaxing, as well as luscious green forests home to all manner of flora – some medicinal - and fauna. Take the opportunity to go on a guided walk and you’ll discover all sorts of wonders, from breath-taking cliffs to secluded grottos.
If you’re the kind to get more adventurous, Lifou is renowned for its snorkelling and diving spots amongst the Jinek Bay Marine Reserve. Whether you’re a bigger or an experienced diver, you’ll find plenty of support and some gorgeous spots to delve into the submarine wildlife. You can also learn more about the fascinating Melanesian culture on the island, with local guides explaining the traditions of the region, along with a few culinary tips on traditional dishes like bougna too.
The Central Pacific Franc is the official currency of Lifou. Lifou is 11 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +11).
