Start your Noumea holiday off the way you’re supposed to: on the beach with a tropical drink in your hand. The main beach of Anse Vata is filled with tourists and locals all trying to out-relax each other. If you do feel like getting active, challenge some of the residents to some petanque, a game similar to bocce ball. Loser buys beers!
Sitting on the beach and doing nothing can make you hungry, so when your appetite kicks up, make your way over the Noumea market. You can get a plate of freshly sliced sashimi, foie gras and fine French cheese all in one spot. Why French cheese? Because this place is a collectivity of France and the culture is still highly visible throughout the country.
When you want to spend some of the money you saved with Noumea holiday packages, head to the Baie Des Citrons Shopping Complex for a little bit of everything. Groceries, clothes, souvenirs and traditional tattoo shops are all right here. That’s right, tattoo shops. Imagine the look on your mates’ faces when you return home with some brand new ink.
You have to eat because if you don’t, you’ll still be hungry. Get something from lastminute.com.au’s sweet Noumea car hire deals and try all the good eateries. You’ve got to get some goodies from one of the many authentic French bakeries that are scattered about town. When you have an authentic ham and cheese baguette, all of your troubles will go away. Don’t leave without sampling some bougna, a feast dish that contains taro, yam, sweet potato, banana and a variety of meats wrapped in banana leaves. Don’t ask any questions, just eat.
You thought the New Caledonians couldn’t party? Think again. There’s all sorts of things to get into when the sky turns dark. Check out the microbrewery at Les 3 Brasseurs, where flights of amber, brown and blonde suds flow freely. If you’d like to boogie down in a nightclub, head to the end of the jetty at Anse Vata Beach and challenge someone to a dance battle. Be sure to look into the different hotels you can get with Noumea packages and see who’s got the best bars.
Get yourself a new pair of swimmers, some thongs and a bottle of suntan lotion, because you’re going to the South Pacific. Check out these unbelievable New Caledonia holiday packages and take advantage of the bundling options to land even better prices. You can even find something at the last minute when you book our Noumea deals!

Loved the balcony, staff were helpful, beds were comfy. Beautiful fish in the aquarium and great location near to beach and fantastic boulangerie. Perfect for our first stay in Nouméa
Fantastic situation right on the beach. Spacious room with kitchenette a plus. Slow service in bar & restaurant when plenty of staff on duty & not overly busy was disappointing - not a lot of ''upselling'' either?? Not speaking French may have not helped here?? Pool bar had no regular opening ...
Advantages: 1. Turtles were good to view from room. 2. Was a quiet place. Disadvantages: 1. Not that exclusive everyone just rocks up. 2. Rooms and facilities as a whole are very old, gardening is a foreign concept. 3. Breakfast wasn't that good. Run out of some foods and just didn't restock. 4. ...

Helpful Staff. Property dated in need of renovation. Large rooms. Fair walk to beach. OK for the price.
