Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Noumea is known for zoos & aquariums, historic sites, nature, museums, and beaches. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: meet the residents at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie, examine the collection at Tjibaou Cultural Center, head off the coast to Ilot Maitre, and choose your vessel at Dalocean Charter.

Start your trip to Noumea by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Auckland, New Zealand to Noumea is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone difference moving from New Zealand Standard Time (NZST) to New Caledonia Time (NCT) is minus 1 hour. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 28th (Mon) 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 29th (Tue): explore the activities along Kanumera Bay, kick back and relax at Kuto Bay, and then kick back and relax at Oro Bay. On your second day here, don't miss a visit to Upi Bay, enjoy the sand and surf at Piscine Naturelle, and then step off the mainland to explore Isle of Pines.

For maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Ile Des Pins vacation planner.

You can do a combination of flight and car from Noumea to Ile Des Pins in an hour. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in January, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 30th (Wed) to allow time for travel back home.
