  • We stayed in the over water bungalow and had a good time. Spent the time snorkeling around the lagoon and spotted turtles, rays, sea snakes and plenty of fish. Pool is nice and the island is great. St...  more »
  • Very nice and quick and easy access for a day relaxing. Go boating and swimming with turtles and a few "striped knits" program just for the scenery but also a beach. Our experience at the open buffet is very positive, just fair to ask in case of service delays and the reaction is very effective. In summary a day relaxing.. .to renew

  • So it took all of 5 minutes to get there and a short queue to line up for the taxi boat. When I got there there are no real instructions or guidance from anyone. You have to pay for a sunbaking chair ...  more »

  • In a few minutes from Nouméa, you're there. Island on which lies a hotel with rooms on stilts on one side and on the other, this is the part for the Kiters (side exposed to the wind). Sheltered side of the prevailing wind, this is the area for boaters, swimmers, etc... Fares with benches and barbecues are at home (wood brought by the protection of the lagoon). For swimming: attention a lot of passing. Lots of turtles.

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.
