The Chesterfield Islands are in New Caledonia, to the extreme west of the rest of the country (nearly 300 miles).
The many tiny islets of the Chesterfields are little more than small beaches stranded in the middle of the South Pacific. Inhabited only by birds and nesting turtles (of which there are indeed very many), all there is to see is wildlife, all there is to do is sun, swim, and dive.
 Get in
There is only one method of travel, and that is private yacht—there are no commercial transport options. Owing to the extreme isolation of these islands and to the lack of any facilities or amenities, a trip here can only be called an expedition.
