Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Noumea: Fort Teremba (in La Foa), Sentier de la petite cascade (in Farino) and Parc Provincial de la Riviere Bleue (in Yate). There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie, examine the collection at Musee de Nouvelle Caledonie, don't miss a visit to Promenade Pierre-Vernier, and head off the coast to Ile aux Canards island.

To find where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Noumea day trip site .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is La Tontouta International Airport. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Wed) 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 12th (Thu): head off the coast to Isle of Pines, explore the activities along Kanumera Bay, then kick back and relax at Oro Bay, and finally tour the pleasant surroundings at Piscine Naturelle. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: make a trip to Upi Bay, enjoy the sand and surf at Kuto Bay, and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Pic N'Ga.

To find photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Ile Des Pins visit site .

Traveling by combination of flight and taxi from Noumea to Ile Des Pins takes an hour. September in Ile Des Pins sees daily highs of 27°C and lows of 19°C at night. On the 14th (Sat), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
