    Very good to spend part of the afternoon, air-conditioned aquarium, exhibits interesting and often special evenings.

    An aquarium representing all (or almost) species that can be crossed in the Caledonian seabed. The visit is quite limited in the attractions, this place deserves the evolution, with additional visits (boat etc...)

    Amazing aquarium as it provides a lot of natural light in and is very people friendly. There is a special room which has neon corals which was amazing. Reasonable too. Takes an hour or less to go through.

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.
