Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Cathedrale St Joseph de Noumea and Chateau Hagen. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Tjibaou Cultural Center and Le Musee Maritime de Nouvelle-Caledonie. Take a break from Noumea with a short trip to Parc Provincial de la Riviere Bleue in Yate, about 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie, head off the coast to Ile aux Canards island, browse the exhibits of Arts Premiers Galerie, and look for gifts at Vakarm.

For other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Noumea trip planner .

The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to New Caledonia Time, which is usually a 16 hour difference. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to travel to Ile Des Pins.

Just a little way off the southern end of Grand Terre, Île des Pins (the Isle of Pines) gets its name from the tall columnar pines that stick out of the surrounding vegetation like bristles on a brush.
Kick off your visit on the 28th (Sat): head off the coast to Isle of Pines, then enjoy the sand and surf at Kuto Bay, then contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Piscine Naturelle.

To see maps, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Ile Des Pins attractions planner.

Traveling by combination of flight and taxi from Noumea to Ile Des Pins takes an hour. In September, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 62°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
