Noumea ©
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: step off the mainland to explore Ile aux Canards island, tour the old-fashioned way with a train tour, visit a coastal fixture at Amedee Lighthouse, and examine the collection at Tjibaou Cultural Center.

For reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Noumea online itinerary planner.

Zagreb, Croatia to Noumea is an approximately 33-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 10 hours traveling from Zagreb to Noumea. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Mon) early enough to travel to 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 17th (Tue): step off the mainland to explore Isle of Pines, then kick back and relax at Piscine Naturelle, then kick back and relax at Kuto Bay, and finally contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay.
