Nature / Park
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. Add Place des Cocotiers and other attractions to your Noumea trip itinerary using our Noumea trip builder.

  • This is a park near the downtown of Noumea which is walking distance from the ferry station or ship terminal downtown. A great place to stroll with friends or just chill on a park bench under a tree.  more »
  • An interesting spot to sit and watch people go by. Best part is the free wifi that you can access, provided by the city council!  more »

  • Popular central gathering place with nice cafes.
  • Central park of Noumea. A selection of shops around the area and a few places to eat and get coffee in the park. We used this as our central point of reference when walking around the town.
  • Great to sit down and have lunch. Free Wi-Fi. Watch the world go by. Pleasant part of Noumea in the heart of the city
  • The main square in the heart of town, band stand at one end, sculptures and statues, a pleasant area of town, however not the place to get a cup of coffee, way over priced if your a tourist. Much better coffee and pastries to be had elsewhere.
  • This is a large central park located downtown Noumea. Plenty of people wandering around July, I'm picking even more popular during the summer.
