Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Change things up with a short trip to Parc Provincial de la Riviere Bleue in Yate (about 1h 20 min away). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sea views from Amedee Lighthouse, step off the mainland to explore Ilot Maitre, examine the collection at Musee de Nouvelle Caledonie, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie.

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.
On the 12th (Sat), head off the coast to Isle of Pines, then stroll through Kuto Bay, then contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Piscine Naturelle. On the 13th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: make a trip to Upi Bay and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Oro Bay.

To find maps, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Ile Des Pins trip builder .

You can do a combination of flight and taxi from Noumea to Ile Des Pins in an hour. In October, daily temperatures in Ile Des Pins can reach 28°C, while at night they dip to 21°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
