Where is New Caledonia?
New Caledonia is a special collectivity of France that is located in the southwest Pacific Ocean. Its archipelago includes the main island of Grande Terre, the Loyalty Islands, the Chesterfield Islands, the Belep archipelago, the Isle of Pines, and a few remote islets.
The total land of New Caledonia is divided into three provinces. Both North and South Provinces are located on the New Caledonian mainland and the Loyalty Islands Province is a series of islands off the mainland. Other than that, the mainland is also divided in length by a central mountain range whose highest peaks are Mont Panié in the north and Mont Humboldt in the southeast.
