New Caledonia is a French enclave located about 15° west of the International Date Line, idyllically situated in the heart of the southern Pacific Ocean. The largest island of the archipelago is Grande Terre with Mont Panié (1628 m), surrounded by many smaller islands and atolls. A coral reef of about 1600 km lines Grande Terre at intervals of 10 to 50 km, the water depth is usually not more than 40 m. It forms the second largest lagoon in the world and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008.


New Caledonia was probably settled by the Kanaks around 1500 BC. However, Europeans discovered the islands with James Cook only in the eighteenth century. In 1853 it was taken into French possession. Today, 250,000 inhabitants of Melanesian, European, Polynesian and Asian origin live in the territory.
