#7 of 11 in Parks in Noumea
Take a break from the city noise by visiting Place des Cocotiers, a quiet park offering greenery and blooming tropical flowers. If you want some company and a bit of distraction, look for the park's giant chessboard and band rotunda dating back to the 1800s. Visit at night or on the weekends to catch special events that include performances with live music and traditional dancing. Occasionally you can even catch a market selling arts and crafts, produce, cakes, and cooked dishes.

  • Very nice place in Center of Noumea. A very nice Bandstand dating from the beginning of the last century. Visit day rather than at night so d avoid the "odd" encounters

  • It is a maddening dirt, as the rest of the city. There is again a pack of teenagers or intoxicated adults to the marrow all most certainly high on grass. Nothing to do in this corner. Leaving town to get away and not being stared at all the time

  • It is true that the square is the centre of Numea, but besides a few caffees, ther is not much to see ar do. The place gets quite deserted in the late afternoon.  more »

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.
