New Caledonia

Surfing in New Caledonia

New Caledonia is only two hours flight from Auckland and is home to not only the largest lagoon in the world, but some stunning scenery and of course epic waves!

New Caledonia is situated in the heart of the South Pacific, 1500km east of Australia. The main island is accompanied by the Loyalty Islands, Isle of Pines, Belep and a myriad of small islands. The barrier reef around New Caledonia stretches over 1600km and encircles the main island, creating the world’s largest (and one of the most beautiful) lagoons on the planet.. with lots of reef passes!

Cooled by the Pacific Ocean and the trade winds, New Caledonia enjoys a sunny semi-tropical climate year round. The warm season, from September to March, has temperatures averaging between 25-27°C, with short occasional rains. The cool season, from April to August, has temperatures averaging between 20-23°C, but water temperature stays warm enough for swimming. January to March is the rainy season, while September to November is the dry season.

New Caledonia receives swell all year round, with the months of May through to October providing optimum wind conditions.
