Place des Cocotiers aka Coconut Square, is the main meeting place for Noumea residents and also "ground zero" in calculating distance in New Caledonia. It is full of history and it is worth visiting with a local guide knowing the history. While you are in...More

Hi Anna, I would advise you to contact Oleti Tours. They offer great tours. One in the south, with lots of swimming for kids. I know they have a website. Emily
