  • The aquarium is not very large but still very very interesting and had a nice visit. Damage still than the basin of the turtles is not put more into value! The people that come with their picnic can be taken in the garden outside on tables in the shade. The staff is charming and smiling. This aquarium is worth to be visited.

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.
