Noumea

Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays. You can see the strong French influence in the colorful European architecture, gourmet restaurants, and stylish boutiques offering the latest Parisian fashions, but the palm-lined beaches, tropical shrubbery, and friendly inhabitants are 100-percent South Pacific. Tourism in Nouméa concentrates in Anse Vata, at the southern end of the peninsula, overlooked by Ouen Toro, a wooded hill still sporting two World War II artillery cannons. Do take time in your itinerary to explore the rest of the city, which yields lots of discoveries, such as Place des Cocotiers, a large square with shade-dappled gardens. Noumea is in Grand Terre. Put Noumea at the heart of your travel plans by using our New Caledonia road trip planning site .

Where to stay in Noumea

There are few budget options in Nouméa, but a good selection of mid-range hotels. Most are concentrated in Anse Vata, at the southernmost tip of the peninsula, where you'll find palm-fringed beaches and plentiful bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. For something a little more central, consider one of the comfortable hotels around Place Des Cocotiers. The picturesque square is close to the marinas and cathedral, and makes a great base from which to explore the city.
