Underrated place, good to have some green areas left, even in a small town like Nouméa where it tends to look like a concrete jungle even though buildings and surroundings are flat compared to other major cities around the world. Plenty of eateries all around...More

Hi Anna, I would advise you to contact Oleti Tours. They offer great tours. One in the south, with lots of swimming for kids. I know they have a website. Emily
