Be sure to try it for yourself! Whatever time of the year it is, New Caledonia will offer comfortable temperatures due to its semi-tropical climate. The temperatures hover around the mid 20s which is ideal for exploring. If hiking is on your to do list, June to September is the best time to go as the temperatures are slightly cooler offering a much more comfortable hike for adventurers. To access Lifou, the cruise ship will anchor off shore and a tender boat will ferry you into the local village of Easo. The locals will be waiting to greet and invite you onto their stunning island!
