Escapade Island Resort Noumea Coral Reef Bubble

l'escapade island resort snorkelling

The fish living on the coral reef at l'Escapade Island Resort Noumea are visited by thousands of friendly divers and snorkellers each year. They also seem to know that their reef is within the boundaries of a Marine Reserve and that nobody will harm them.

l'Escapade Island Resort is the perfect place to discover the "personalities" of coral reef fish. Each kind of fish has it's own way of doing things. Some, like the little "sergeant majors" with the vertical stripes, boldly come right up to divers and peer into their face masks or tug on their hair. Others, like the yellow snappers, form into schools and swarm in clouds over the reef.

More About Noumea

Noumea is the capital and vacation centre of the Islands of New Caledonia in the South Pacific. Noumea is a "French" city, but the 91,000 inhabitants are a very mixed cultural group with French, Melanesian, Polynesian, Indonesian, Vietnamese, and lots of mixtures of these. Over 60% of the population of New Caledonia lives in Noumea.Noumea is a peninsula on the southwestern end of Grande Terre and the central business district (Centre Ville) is next to one of the best natural harbours in the South Pacific. The lagoon side of the peninsula has two picturesque bays with white sand beaches and is called Anse Vata and Baie des Citrons. These twin bays are the international tourism capital of New Caledonia with hotels, restaurants and bars on the landward side of "La Promenade".First settled by the French in 1854, Noumea retains close political ties with France. It has excellent schools and public facilities - parks, recreation areas, exercise paths, schools and medical facilities. Today it is the fastest growing city in the South Pacific. There are 23 hotels in Noumea ranging from one to five stars and over 100 Restaurants.
