After three days at sea on a cruise ship, we arrived in Nouméa, New Caledonia, on the first day of 2017. For the past three days, all that surrounded us was sea, so the sight of land was greatly welcomed. The city is made up of concrete buildings, some of beautiful bright colours, others keeping to the original grey. The French influence in Nouméa is omnipresent, from the language, people to the supermarkets (Carréfour).

Unfortunately we couldn't do a great amount of exploring, eating or shopping as everything was closed, due to the fact that it was new years day. Everybody in New Caledonia was probably nursing their hangover, as were all the people on the cruise.

We relied on the sightseeing bus and hop on hop off bus to get a taste of Nouméa. We went to some spectacular viewpoints, drove past prominent government buildings and spent the afternoon sitting on Citron beach absorbing the beautiful air.

DOs in Nouméa:
  • Hop on hop off bus - drive along on the beautiful coastline
  • Citron beach - calm water with a diving station in the middle of the water, great place to just sit, read a book and relax
  • Sun protection!

DON'Ts in Nouméa:

  • Go on New Years Day
