Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Get out of town with these interesting Noumea side-trips: Blue River Provincial Park (in Yate), Fort Teremba (in La Foa) and Sentier de la petite cascade (in Farino). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Anse Vata Beach, stroll through Plage de la Baie des Citrons, see the interesting displays at Musee de Nouvelle Caledonie, and walk around Place des Cocotiers.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Noumea trip planner.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major aiport is La Tontouta International Airport. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Wed) so you can travel to Ile Des Pins.

Ile Des Pins ©
Just a little way off the southern end of Grand Terre, Île des Pins (the Isle of Pines) gets its name from the tall columnar pines that stick out of the surrounding vegetation like bristles on a brush.
Start off your visit on the 12th (Thu): step off the mainland to explore Isle of Pines, then contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, then enjoy the sand and surf at Oro Bay, and finally kick back and relax at Piscine Naturelle. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 13th (Fri): don't miss a visit to Upi Bay, kick back and relax at Kuto Bay, and then take in the awesome beauty at N'Ga Peak.

For traveler tips, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Ile Des Pins vacation planner.

Traveling by combination of flight and taxi from Noumea to Ile Des Pins takes an hour. Expect a daytime high around 27°C in September, and nighttime lows around 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 14th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
