#1 of 11 in Nature in New Caledonia
The first metal lighthouse constructed in France, Amedee Lighthouse Island sits inside a World Heritage-listed lagoon. The island features white-sand beaches and teal-blue waters and lures snorkelers and swimmers with its coral reefs, where tropical fish, turtles, and starfish await. When you visit the lighthouse, wear comfortable shoes and climb 247 steps to the top to take in views of the lagoon. Be aware of the island's snakes, and look out for their tracks in the sand.

    Not too far from Nouméa, we took a boat "carpooling" of the yachting Port Marina. The Amédée Lighthouse Beach is certainly very often crowded world and tourists including, however it is certainly far less and the most appropriate location for diving. Turquoise water, coral fish per hundred, big, small... Parrots, clown fish, butterfly fish, fish-ladies or surgeons and those pesky triggerfish quin' were afraid of anything and who follow you to try to bite you... (Nothing abnormal and nothing dangerous) There followed also several turtles, easy to spot if there is not a lot of noise. Masks and fins of rigour! For can also enjoy the view at the top of the lighthouse of course! A small café that also serves cocktails is available downstairs and a souvenir also shop!

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.
