    I love this little island because it is beautiful when it comes on it we see the pretty little stilts view is Heavenly. The water of the lagoon invites you to dive the sand to lay on a sarong to relax. Beautiful just 20 mins from taxi boat for a really reasonable price. You can spend the day to picnic on the beach.

    Two cables of Noumea, this island we helped to relax on the beach while enjoying a few striped knit passing by... You can also see fish owls, turtles, Octopus, sharks, etc. If you can stay a night, the hotel is top!

    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.
