in New Caledonia

New Caledonia, a land of enchantment and adventure, is the perfect destination for a honeymoon filled with romance. Dive into seven dreamy experiences for your post-wedding getaway.

Live your dream honeymoon

New Caledonia is an ode to love, providing a picturesque backdrop for celebrating your union. Whether it’s a leisurely swim in the lagoon, a traditional outrigger sail, or gazing at sunset, embark on thrilling adventures as a couple.

Staying over the lagoon

and swim with the turtles

New Caledonia boasts charming accommodation in world-renowned natural settings. Imagine staying on Îlot Maître, just 20 minutes from Port Moselle, where you’ll find overwater bungalows perched above the turquoise lagoon. Alternatively, luxury resorts on the Loyalty Islands, Isle of Pines, or Grande Terre offer beachfront bungalows, some even feature private mini-plunge pools. Here, you’re mere steps away from the opportunity to swim alongside the lagoon’s graceful marine turtles—a dreamy start to your honeymoon.

Catamaran cruises

Take a seat on a catamaran and set sail on New Caledonia’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed lagoon. You’ll have the chance to explore secluded beaches and islets while enjoying high-comfort cabins with en-suite bathrooms. Days will be marked by relaxation, strolls, swims, and sunsets with a glass of champagne in hand.

Not to be missed

From mid-July to mid-September, consider catamaran day trips from Nouméa or Prony to observe humpback whales—an original and surprising experience to commemorate your honeymoon

Treat yourself to an outrigger trip

on Upi Bay

Often likened to Vietnam’s Halong Bay, Upi Bay is adorned with large coral rocks that appear to float as if by magic. Cruising the serene waters of this enchanting place aboard a traditional outrigger pirogue is an ultra-romantic experience. Drift along, captivated by the turquoise and green horizons, and keep an eye out for rays, turtles, and dolphins. Step aboard and let the serenity of this emblematic New Caledonian bay envelop you.

Helicopter flights

over the archipelago

Soar over the lagoon aboard a helicopter, witnessing the ever-changing colours of New Caledonia – from blue to red to green – as you pass over the archipelago’s most magnificent sights: Barrier Reef, Heart of Voh, Blue River Park, Lindéralique rocks, Prony Bay, and more. Helicopter tours provide a unique opportunity for two to revel in these suspended moments.


Consider a romantic helicopter tour that includes a stop on a deserted islet—a perfect setting to exchange sweet words and celebrate this significant moment. You can also combine a helicopter flight with jet skiing and snorkelling near Nouméa’s islets.

Enjoy “Signature” massages that are soothingly gentle, Jacuzzis overlooking the lagoon, and packages that include spa treatments and massages, offering an exclusive retreat with top-notch hospitality.

Sunset strolls on the beach

Hand in hand, walk along the beach with the horizon glowing in the hues of an orange-pink sunset—a truly romantic experience. Poé, Isle of Pines, or the Loyalty Islands offer perfect settings for a romantic stroll. Or, for a more unique experience, go horseback riding on the beach and gallop just like in the movies! Listen to the sound of the waves and enjoy the moment!
