Noumea Mini Guide

What Kind of Travellers Head for Noumea?
Noumea is an industrial city so you may be sharing your plane with business travellers as well as those who come to enjoy the fabulous beaches and the wonderful hospitality of the Noumeans. The island has a reputation for delicious food too, a result of the mix of cultures that share it. You’ll need to like your holidays hot and humid for Grande Terre has a very tropical climate but at least there’s the cooling sea if things get too hot.

Noumea By Night

How Easy is it to get to Noumea?
It’s a long trip to Noumea from Europe or eastern America but it’s not difficult. Many travellers choose to connect in Australia, although the recognised hub for Europe is Finnair’s flight from Helsinki to Seoul in Korea, before making a connection to Noumea. What you will find is that prices are very expensive, especially for the last leg to Noumea because of a lack of competition.

Lemon Beach in Noumea

What can I do When I get to Noumea?
You can split your time between relaxing on the perfect beaches, taking an occasional cooling dip in the sea, taking off in your hire car to explore the dense jungle and mountains of the interior or finding out more about the people that live in New Caledonia and how they’ve developed over the millennia. First point of call should be the Museum of New Caledonia which takes you from the early aboriginal settlement up to the current day. For a more cultural approach to its history, visit the Tjibaou Cultural Centre which is housed in a giant version of the traditional wooden huts built by early settlers.
