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.

    Cool under the trees, you share the life of the inhabitants of the pebbles. Smiling, they will share with you their good mood .of each side of the place of small shops, stalls will welcome you.

    Very well appointed with benches and shaded place. Lush greenery. A little dirty and not necessarily very well maintained. Some corners of the square are not well common according to the schedules of the day damage. At least there to room for entertainment that's cool.

    It's a very nice place but unfortunately too dirty because of the incivility of many... and the bins are too few in number and often full. This does not give a beautiful image many Australian tourists who disembark liners...

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.
