Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Noumea is known for nature, zoos & aquariums, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: enjoy the sea views from Amedee Lighthouse, meet the residents at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and head off the coast to Ile aux Canards island.

Plan my trip to Noumea with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Auckland, New Zealand to Noumea is an approximately 4.5- hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Auckland to Noumea. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) to allow time to travel to Ile Des Pins.

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.
Kick off your visit on the 11th (Sat): enjoy the sand and surf at Kuto Bay, then enjoy the sand and surf at Oro Bay, and then stroll through Piscine Naturelle. On the 12th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get outside with Nokanhoui, then explore the activities along Kanumera Bay, and then head off the coast to Isle of Pines.

To see maps, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, read Ile Des Pins tour itinerary maker tool.

You can do a combination of flight and taxi from Noumea to Ile Des Pins in an hour. In April, plan for daily highs up to 31°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sun) so you can travel to Lifou.
