New Caledonia Packing List Tips by hunwagner Top 5 Page for this destination
New Caledonia What to Pack: 5 reviews and 3 photos
Miscellaneous: Unless you speak French, this will be very useful at some point.
Be prepared that hardly anybody speaks English in New Caledonia!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: As usual in the South Pacific, having your own mask and snorkel is a very good idea.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: A tent can save you a small fortune here - bring your own!
Miscellaneous: The most detailed guidebooks to New Caledonia in English were produced by Lonely Planet.
Note that the publisher has recently dumped the country together with Vanuatu in one book, which means that some of the earlier detail is inevitably lost. I suggest that you get a copy of the older editions to New Caledonia alone - this is a very stable place where not much changes. Another great guide to the wider region is Moon's South Pacific Handbook, that covers New Caledonia in good detail and is pretty up to date.
Miscellaneous: The only field guide to the birds of New Caledonia, this book is a must for anyone with an interest in the territory's fauna.
