Lifou is a commune in the Loyalty Islands Province of New Caledonia, an overseas territory of France in the Pacific Ocean. The commune of Lifou is made up of Lifou Island, the largest and most heavily populated of the Loyalty Islands, its smaller neighbor Tiga Island, and several uninhabited islets in between these two. All these islands lie among the Loyalty Islands, 190 km to the northeast of New Caledonia's mainland. The town of We, on Lifou Island, is the administrative center of the commune of Lifou as well as the provincial seat of the Islands Province.
Lifou Island is a popular cruise port with many cruises leaving from Australia calling into port at Easo. The ships anchor up just off the island and tender passengers ashore.
