The Atlandis Top 3 'Things to Do'

Amedee Lighthouse

Located 40 minutes away by boat from Nouméa, the Amédée Isle is mostly called “le Phare Amédée” (the Amédée lighthouse) by the Nouméans. The lighthouse, surrounded by white sand, symbolizes this place where activities are often held for tourists.

Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie

Small aquarium featuring a wide variety of tropical fish, a live nautilus & an outdoor turtle pond.


Port Boise is a sheltered bay in the SE corner of New Caledonia, 5 nm from Havannah Passe. It offers good anchorage, an opportunity to explore ashore and good reefs to explore. There is a resort on the NE corner of the bay, but the rest of the bay is very undeveloped. The reef at the entrance offers good snorkeling opportunities.
