Where can you find beautiful tropical beaches lined with more colonial mansions than you can shake a sandy beach towel at? Noumea, of course. Where can you dine on classy, waterfront French cuisine—and then satisfy midnight snack cravings at a nocturnal food van in a car park? Duh. Noumea. And the best place in the world to explore coral reefs?
Okay, so maybe that’s the Great Barrier Reef, but the New Caldonian barrier reef is the second longest double-barrier reef in the world. So if watching (or eating) colourful fish is your thing, head to the island of Grande Terre in the French territory of New Caledonia. Your eyes (and taste buds) will thank you.
Point one of lastminute.com.au’s Noumea car hire options toward the coast. The coral off Rochers a la Voile is just metres away. You could practically blow raspberries on it from the shore, although we recommend wading in with your snorkel gear instead.
Want to learn more about the local Kanak and Melanesian cultures? Jump in your Noumea car rental and cruise over to the Museum of New Caledonia. Thirsty? Choose from a store of delectable French wines or a local brew (called Number One) and enjoy your boon on the beach.
Before knocking off for the night at our hotels in New Caledonia, relax with a mug of hot chocolate. They actually make it from melted chocolate here. #drool
Want to see the heart-shaped mangrove that launched a thousand idyllic travel brochures? Drive 300km north to the Heart of Voh. And how about rock formations that look like a hen and a sphinx? They’re just 381km northeast in Hienghene.
Or just cruise up and down the west coast looking for Nemo in the reefs. Whatever tickles your pickle.
