Lifou, New Caledonia Overview

Lifou is made up of Lifou Island, the largest and most heavily populated of the Loyalty Islands,its smaller neighbour Tiga Island, and several uninhabited islets in between these two. All these islands lie among the Loyalty Islands, 190 km (120 mi) to the northeast of New Caledonia’s mainland. At 1,146 km2 (442 sq mi), Lifou Island is the largest atoll in the world.

The town of Wé, on Lifou Island, is the administrative centre of the commune of Lifou as well as the provincial seat of the Islands Province.

Like Maré and Ouvéa, the other Loyalty islands, Lifou is made of fossil coral.Lifou is a makatea,an ancient lagoon slowly raised by geological processes.Due to the uplift, Lifou consists of a wide, flat center surrounded by cliffs which correspond to the ancient reefal cliffs.The coral rock exhibits high porosity and hence, neither Lifou nor any of the other Loyalty Islands have surface water.It does, however, have a large freshwater reservoir which can be accessed through caves. These caves were used in the past when searching for fresh water, and are very important to the island’s mythology.
