The Amédée Lighthouse is an iron lighthouse located on Amédée Island, 24 km away from Nouméa.
The metal components were made by Rigolet in North-East Paris in 1862 and the tower was constructed in Paris as a demonstration. It was then disassembled into pieces weighing a total of 387,953 kilos and transported along the river Seine to the port of Le Havre for its voyage to New Caledonia. At 56 metres tall (247 steps), it is one of the tallest lighthouses in the world and it was the first metallic lighthouse constructed in France. Its light signals the entrance to the passage of Boulari, one of only three natural passages in the reef surrounding New Caledonia.
An exceptional marine reserve
The Amédée Isle offers amazing underwater experiences. Located in the heart of a reserve protected from any type of fishing, you can observe a myriad of species, simply with a mask and snorkel. Snorkeling fans can enjoy swimming next to turtles, clown fish and other emblematic species of the Caledonian lagoon, a UNESCO heritage.
