Favorite thing: One of the best things about New Caledonia is the it feels largely unspoilt by tourism.
Only Noumea and the outer islands have a range of those typical South Pacific-style hotels and resorts and get a noticeable number of visitors, and even there, the majority of them are French holidaymakers, rather than foreign tourists.
These are also the places where cruise-ships stop every now and then - but they are gone the same day.
In rural parts of Grande Terre, the most interesting part of the territory, you are most unlikely to meet any foreign tourists, and the campsites and other accomodation seem to cater mostly to young metros exploring the island on weekends and during holidays.
Noumea's excellent youth hostel is also usually filled with young metros, recently arrived from France in search of work, rather than foreign backpackers.
This may be bad news if you come here expecting to mingle with your own kind, but if you want to have beautiful, friendly places all for yourself, you won't go wrong here!
