Noumea is my favourite stop. We go to Escapade Island with Noumea shore tours gateaway tours and love it! It's a beautiful secluded island with huts over the water And you can swim with turtles. Can't wait to go there in a few months 👍👍

Did the hop on bus to Duck Island. Pretty little island with upscale furniture but poor snorkeling because all the coral was broken. We saw better fish as we swam towards the buoys. They wanted $ to sit on the chairs. I got annoyed and left. Took the bus again and stopped at the little aquarium. Fantastic exhibit and good turtle exhibit also.

Take reef shoes, due to coral. Snorkel if you can, either take your own or you can hire. Use local currency & buy from markets.

Well developed port. Excursions at welcome centre were fraction of the price of ship for same experience, and hop-on-hop-off shuttles got us to every location for the day very cost effectively.

Travel to FOL lookout for a great view. Visit the church of La Conception. Then stop Promenade Vernier. Wander the shops in the Palm Beach Gallery.
