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.

  • Weekdays Wednesday afternoon, people thought I wanted to taste the change of time. The baguette bites people, listening to music, children playing ball. Various stores; Also restaurants and cafes located within the square. Singing birds of New Caledonia in the Palm trees. Pigeons and sparrows are on the streets. Near the Casino, the staff were friendly, so we bought lunch there. Return to the square, sitting on the bench, and ate it. So there was a little wind, but sunshine was good, very clean. Bus stop there, so go back to the hotel soon.

  • It's a big beautiful place which is lined with trade everything in the round. There are pretty heavenly fountain and a kiosk to music or sometimes performances are given in the Christmas period. There are also local artists booths Thursday called Thursday from the city center. Coconut trees are huge and magnificent vegetation is pretty. The tourist office is located on this site. However the evening there may be a few people alcohol on the side of the squares. Nevertheless remains a nice place because of its dense vegetation and many coconut trees.

  • A place when you visit Noumea. A lot of shop of any kind are present round (restaurant, shopping, operator...) And for those passing the tattooists are not very far. Trying on a beautiful day...

  • 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.

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.
