Lifou Island is the largest and most important island in the Loyalty Islands in the archipelago of New Caledonia. The island is only 81kms (50 miles), and 16 - 24 kms (10 - 15 miles long). The island is flat with no hills or rivers but has abundant vegetation. We visited a village and learnt about they way they lived, cooked and as they are a very religious group of people we visited a couple of churches. The locals were very friendly and the children were gorgeous.
