Colorful Signal Island snorkeling in New Caledonia

New Caledonia’s Signal Island (Ilot Signal) sits within what Conservation International lists as the world’s largest marine park. Appropriately named the Natural Park of the Coral Sea, the marine park protects 1.3 million square kilometers (502,000 square miles) of marine ecosystem that includes the world’s second longest double barrier reef and the world’s largest marine lagoon. Within this park and nestled a mere 20 kilometers (just under 12.5 miles and 8 nautical miles) from New Caledonia’s capital city of Noumea, Signal Island is a unique marine reserve that offers its visitors unprecedented snorkeling in close proximity to a diversity of coral and tropical fish as well as hiking among sea birds and flora that is not easily replicated anywhere else in the world.
