To this day, local Kanak customs remain strong and are practiced in daily life. Visitors to these islands experience a truly authentic culture without the tourist trappings.
The Loyalty Islands are also well endowed with beautiful landscapes, beaches, lagoons, and coral. Both the culture and natural attractions make these islands a great place to explore.
