Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Step out of Noumea to go to Yate and see Blue River Provincial Park, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. The adventure continues: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie, get interesting insight from Tours, tour the pleasant surroundings at Plage de la Baie des Citrons, and see the interesting displays at Tjibaou Cultural Center.

To see more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Noumea day trip planner.

Auckland, New Zealand to Noumea is an approximately 7- hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Auckland to Noumea. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) to allow enough time 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.
On the 2nd (Thu), head off the coast to Isle of Pines, kick back and relax at Piscine Naturelle, then contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, and finally make a trip to Upi Bay.

To find reviews, photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Ile Des Pins trip planning website.

You can fly from Noumea to Ile Des Pins in an hour. In July, daily temperatures in Ile Des Pins can reach 26°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
