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.

  • Place located in the heart of the city centre and pretty with as his name suggests a lot of coconut trees are scattered. Nice place where there are frequent events and animations.

  • 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.
  • A nice park located in the centre of Noumea City. It has free wifi however the speed is rather slow: email, some web browsing and Facebook were fine however Skype and FaceTime audios weren't. Check out the occasional markets held here too.
  • Had a food fair here when we were there... Free Wifi
