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 👍👍


Noumea was a little disappointing I think next time I would do a tour of the islands as the city is looking a bit tired

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.
