  • A beautiful island and a great setup. Rented a double canoe for 90 min...cruised around the island, snorkelled and swan with 40-50 turtles of all sizes. Extremely helpful staff...Well worth a few hour...  more »
  • If you are passing a noumea, will spend a day at the island master. take the taxi boat "colleen", arriving through the island in front of the pontoon and go to your right and walk to the end and it's heaven

  • 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.
