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[edit]

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.



Flora and fauna[edit]


Eat and Drink[edit]

Plan to bring and/or fish for your food and drink.


There is beach camping, and there are your cabins on your boat. There are no other options.

Get out[edit]

The nearest land mass, aside from Grande Terre, is Australia—nearly 300 miles to the west.
