    The Cap N’Dua nature reserve was created in 1972 by the territory of New Caledonia to preserve the area's biodiversity following intensive mining activity. It is one of the few protected land areas with a coastline. Its biodiversity is exceptional and includes maquis shrubland, rainforest, mangrove forest and diverse wildlife. Close to the customary lands of the clans of the south, this reserve is on the edge of the Great Southern Lagoon, an area listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2008. Overlooking the lagoon, the Cap N’Dua Lighthouse is the perfect spot to watch the humpback whales that frolic in the water between the Sarcelle Pass and Ouen Island from July to October.
