YOU should SEND photo and be DD AND STD FREE AS WE ARE.
We've just been to New Caledonia and it was beautiful trip but there are a few things to be said and to be considered. We stayed at the Le Lagon hotel which was a great value for the money. It's in the perfect location, close to everything you needed. Average meal is about 50AUD per head regardless which restaurant you go.
What I don't get it is that the food ingredients. The staff at the shops and restaurants is composed of locals pretty much, which means they get.
Petrol is also cheap, so why is it so expensive? Possibly to owners of those business who I believe don't live there imo. I don't know if it was the patisserie near our hotel, but we didn't get impressed with the French style pastries.
Nothing really like the French pastries. If you have been to France, you know what I am talking about. In general, we didn't like. If you are a coffee Connoisseur, you are bound to a bitter disappointment. At all the places we've been, they don't seem to know how. In most occasions, the coffee was made by those automated machines. So, pack up your Moccona or Nescafe! We went to Maitre and Isle of Pines. Both were totally worth it. It is really beautiful. Kuto bay is awesome. The locals are very aggressive behind wheels and don't respect the speed limits.
I felt like was going to be run over by. If you choose to drive, avoid the early hours of the day 5am to 7am, that's the busiest time for them, as. Make sure you hire a good car, not the cheapest one, as you might.
They are very nice, especially at the shops BUT we had an incident at one night during the walk from the restaurant to the hotel. A group of passing by aboriginals Islanders harassed us verbally in French. We could not understand but we could feel that it was something to. Also I got staring looks from other Aboriginals at nights when walking alone. If you can afford, stay at the small islands, no point staying at the main island.
If you stay at the main island, you have to take transports or tours. Also, doing further investigation, I discovered the main island does have nice beaches crystal waters although told otherwise ;-D, to get there you have have. There's a beautiful beach in front of it. Sorry if I sounded a bit negative, but all the posts I read here made up my mind about a place which turned out not to meet my expectations.
If it wasn't for the. I also posted my notes about our holiday experience on the same day! Getting good info about disappointing things and advice on how to avoid or make better is the best sort of info I look for when reading post so don't worry about a bit negativity.
I agree that the food was expensive for average quality, the coffee bad. We spent time up north and found that much of the land scenery was disappointing but at least the driving away form Noumea was much more relaxed. Underwater was good and ideas like staying on an island resort rather than in town are worth considering as you point out.
You must be very careful when you cross the road on pedestrians. Local drivers have not manners at all. You must let pass a few cars before maybe,some one give you the way.
They always make signal by cars,if they see somebody walking in the street who they know. Open car's window and very loud music. They think it's very cool. If you do the same in Holland,for example,you must pay a fine. Disgusting people and very dirty Island.
I am staying here already 6 weeks and have some experience. It's not kind of holiday,just i have to. Don't walk in the street alone in night time. Everywhere group aboriginal islanders,who drunk and looking for problems. If you come here for a few days it's o'key,but for a long term My husband and I are planning a trip in October and, like you, we are taking the quick fight to Isle of Pines. Can you tell me how you rented the car on Isle of Pines and if I can make a reservation online to insure availability at the Isle of Pines airport upon arrival?
Many thanks for your help! Thank You for your honest review. I have been to Noumea and Isle of Pines several times on cruise ships and although I have enjoyed my days there it would not be somewhere that I would choose for a land based holiday. We have recently been to Espiritu Santo after a couple of cruise ship visits and loved it so much we are going back at Christmas. Hi Kath, your comment has got my intrigued about Espiritu Santo , Have you returned?
The local people are responsible for it since they're the ones that keep voting for the same government that continues on increasing taxes every year. By the look of it it's getting worse and worse, prices will be inflated to the point where no tourist will want to come to New Caledonia anymore.
Thanks again for your great feedback and I hope whoever works in tourism will read your honest and constructive review. We have just returned from New Caledonia - and we felt a little differently. Yes food was expensive but if you look around there are plenty of places to get a reasonable priced meal if you are not looking for fine dining.
The patisserie around the corner from Hotel Le Lagon where we stayed excellent was cheap for a croissant and coffee. We walked around at night and not once did we feel unsafe. Of course you stick to the main areas when in an unknown place.
The people were polite and everyone at least made an effort to accommodate us being unable to speak French. We didn't come across a single rude person while we were there. We hired a moped for three days and found the roads excellent and the drivers polite, patient and good drivers. The only time we felt unsafe was when crossing at the pedestrian crossings and that was only because no one had told us that pedestrians don't get right of way.
You have to step onto that crossing before the cars have to stop. We fly over to Isle of Pines which was just bliss but if you are looking for entertainment and shopping this is not the place for you. Food and accommodation is expensive but remember it is an island and there is really nothing to do except if you are into walking, snorkelling, exploring a place and enjoying nature. We were fortunate to find a place that allowed us to cook hotplate which certainly helped keep costs down.
The only downside is that the luggage limit is 12kg so if you are travelling from an international destination you will get charged excess. Apparently you can negotiate a fare with Air Caledonie before you go but we weren't aware of that. There is a ferry option but this doesn't run for the month of February each year.
We would go back in a heartbeat and were really sad to leave. We went with no expectations but ready to immerse ourselves in a new culture and experiences and that is exactly what we did. Actually, pedestrians do have the right of way, but cars often won't stop unless people look to be starting to cross. I just came back from Canada, and was surprised to see cars and trucks stopping as I was just looking for my direction next to a pedestrian crossing!
This is an old thread but thought that. The bottom line is if you are a budget traveller looking for a budget experience go to Bali, or Phuket or Fiji. Personally we love the Noumea experience and accept that we have to pay a premium for it. Ask yourself why Australian budget airlines don't have access to Tontouta. The answer is They are pitching to a different market. Other than alcohol, eating out is not that much more expensive than any Australian city.

Hundreds of pilgrims still gather here each year in August to celebrate Assumption. New Caledonia is still a territory belonging to France, and this influence is most notable in the fine dining and local cuisine available in Noumea.
Like many other tropical holiday destinations, the seafood in New Caledonia is exquisite and offers some of the best of fusion food, combining French and Melanesian traditions into one.
For a traditional island dish, try Bougna — this is a Melanesian meal involving meats, seafood and often yams or sweet potatoes that are cooked in hot rocks.
Spend time on spectacular beaches, take in mountain views, explore sunken rock pools and beautiful lagoons, and discover a vibrant underwater world. Living is easy here, and definitely and relaxed! Amedee Islet is a small, coral island reachable in around 45 minutes from Noumea, via a high-speed boat. Visitors can explore and climb the iconic lighthouse for some sweeping views, relax on the pristine beaches, snorkel in the shallows or take a tour in a glass-bottomed boat.
If you want to get there faster and your budget allows, take a minute plane or helicopter trip from Noumea. Top of the must-see list is Piscine Naturelle, a lagoon famous for its crystal-clear water and friendly fish. In the southwest, visitors can stroll along the 1, metre-long Kuto Bay or watch the waves rolling in at la Baie des Rouleaux Roller Bay.
The islands' east is home to Oro Bay, where tidal channels have created pools sheltered by coral cliffs. But try and learn a few words of French before you go - its fun to practice your French. Buses go everywhere in Noumea up to 7. Taxis are reliable and inexpensive by Aus standards and are good value when a few people share - restaurants, hotels museums etc will all call a taxi on request.
New Caledonia is expensive compared with other Island destinations, but fairly comparable with Sydney for hotels and good restaurants.
I would not call it an expensive location by world standards. If you wish, you can rent an apartment or even take an apartment at a hotel like the Hilton La Promenade that includes a kitchenette. It is easy to shop at a supermarket so you can self-cater. Stay away unless you speak French..
If the world suffered from piles thjis place is where they would be. Arrogance and rudeness abounds!. I was warned not to get off the ship in this port, but thought the people were exaggerating.. They were in fact being kind to it!. Three hours were enough for me. Sorry to the non rude people that I never met, I must have missed all 10 of you!.
You summed it up "ship". Cruise ship passengers are the problem, not the locals of Noumea or real tourists who are spending more than 4 hours in port.
It seems like you had a poor experience in Noumea, but believe you me when you get more than 3 blocks from the cruise port people are a lot less bristly and a lot more friendly. Yes, they speak French, but guess what Part of travelling is going places with people of different cultures. You are not writing about the Noumea we just returned from after a 2 week holiday in New Caledonia.
We found the people unfailingly courteous and mostly helpful. English was quite widely spoken in tourist areas, and in Noumea most people spoke at least a little English and were happy to spend time trying to understand us if we persevered. We found a great deal to see, do and learn in Noumea and New Caledonia more generally. It is a beautiful tourist destination that has certainly enriched our lives.
I guess that 'Boat people are a problem everywhre these days. I have cruised into many Islands and continents, -- never have I experienced anything like this place.
Yes it is French -- maybe that is part of tye problem!. Sorry mate, You and I obviously like different things and yup three hours isn't enough to get a good feel for somewhere.
But in this case Three hours was all I wanted to spend there. I change my view to "This place is hell for ship people". Go to Samoa and Fiji instead.
