There's much more to do: visit a coastal fixture at Amedee Lighthouse, meet the residents at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie, stroll around Parc zoologique et forestier, and grab your bike and head to Promenade Pierre-Vernier.

To see reviews, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Noumea trip planner .

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.
Ile Des Pins is known for beaches, nature, wildlife, and outdoors. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: kick back and relax at Piscine Naturelle, step off the mainland to explore Isle of Pines, stroll through Oro Bay, and take in the awesome beauty at Pic N'Ga.

Plan my Ile Des Pins trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Do a combination of flight and taxi from Noumea to Ile Des Pins in an hour. In December, daytime highs in Ile Des Pins are 32°C, while nighttime lows are 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) to allow time to travel to Lifou.

La Foa, Grand Terre

La Foa ©
La Foa is a commune in the South Province of New Caledonia, an overseas territory of France in the Pacific Ocean.Although the provincial seat of the South Province is in Nouméa, La Foa was made the chief town of the administrative subdivision of the South in order to counterbalance the overwhelming weight of Nouméa in New Caledonia. Kick off your visit on the 7th (Tue): explore by horseback at Pocquereux Randonnees and then see the interesting displays at Fort Teremba. Keep things going the next day: tour the pleasant surroundings at Sentier de la petite cascade and then take a peaceful walk through Parc des Grandes Fougeres.

To see photos, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the La Foa trip app .

You can do a combination of taxi and flight from Lifou to La Foa in 3 hours. In January in La Foa, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
