Easo, Lifou, New Caledonia

Highlights of this tropical paradise in the Loyalty Islands include the Chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes, built on a high bluff in 1898, with a panoramic view overlooking the clear blue Santal Bay. Visitors can also explore the island’s many caves, or peek over the edge of the high cliffs at the village of Jokin. Limpid lagoons and fine sandy beaches are also in abundance.
