Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Le Musee Maritime de Nouvelle-Caledonie and Maison de la Perle. The adventure continues: enjoy the sea views from Amedee Lighthouse, examine the collection at Musee de Nouvelle Caledonie, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie, and step off the mainland to explore Ile aux Canards island.

To find maps, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Noumea planner.

Orlando, USA to Noumea is an approximately 32-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to New Caledonia Standard Time, which is usually a 16 hour difference. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Mon) early enough to travel to Mare.
