Ile aux Canards island, Noumea

(900+ reviews on the web)
Island
Famed for its coral reef, the tiny Ile aux Canards island remains a snorkeling paradise just a stone's throw from the mainland. See exotic marine life up close and personal, or just stay on the sand and relax. Rent a beach chair and umbrella, and pick up a few snacks at the cafe serving light meals and drinks. Remember to wear reef shoed to avoid cutting your feet on washed-up coral. If you can, avoid visiting when a cruise ship arrives to take adavantage of the best spots on the sand. Plan to see Ile aux Canards island and other attractions that appeal to you using our Noumea itinerary builder.

  • Awesome snorkeling!! Only 5 mins via water taxi. You do need to estimate how long you will be on the island to book your return taxi. 2 hours was enough for us  more »
