  • Activities on Lifou

    Are there plenty of things to see and do if you are with people of limited ability. I will be with an 83 year old and a man with emphysema so hoping that not everything is long walks and swimming

  • Are there fishing charters in Lifou???

    by gumnut88 Online Now Nov 25, 2013 at 7:02 PM

    There are 5 of us travelling to Lifou for the first time and we would like to go fishing. Does anyone know of any fishing charters or locals that take people out fishing for the day or half a day? We will not have any fishing equipment with us. we would like to go reef fishing more than big game fishing/deep sea fishing. Would love some help. Even if you know the e-mail address for the tourism information centre there as the one I have does not seem to work.
    Thank you

    We are going on a cruise & I want to surf on this island. Apparently there is a surf spot in the bay where the cruise ship stops. Do you any other info on this or any other spots on the island? Thanks Ian

  • need info from a local in lifou

    by namaniane Online Now Sep 10, 2006 at 3:02 AM

    I have been contemplating traveling to lifou to seek out family members. Heard and read that the island is quite beautiful, what I am trying to establish is family connections, was not able to before because I do not speak the languages (kanak and french). I have heard the little mission church built by our forefather (he was a missionary from samoa) in lifou still stands, his name was Iosia from Samoa. His second wife, our ancestor, Namaniane (we have no last name for her) came from Lifou, we would sure appreciate any info from those who live on lifou or around new caledonia who might have heard of this couple's story. Namaniane's descendants are alive and thriving in samoa, we have many questions and want to travel to new caledonia to find our relatives but hesitant because we do not speak french or the indigenous language. mahalo to those who can assist.
