l'Escapade Island Resort Noumea Pier at Night
Noumea

A moonlit walk out on the pier of the L'Escapade Island Resort - you can see Noumea aglow on the horizon and sailing yachts moored quietly in the lagoon. This is a perfect romantic memory of a tropical holiday in New Caledonia. The resort is within the Ilot Maitre Marine Reserve just 25 minutes by boat from Noumea. It is the only resort on the lagoon islands that form part of the New Caledonia Lagoon World Heritage Site. Visitors to the island enjoy a wide range of water sports including snorkelling and diving, kite surfing, kayaks, and swimming in the lagoon or in the swimming pool.For more information on getting to the island visit the Escapade Island Resort Noumea website or take a virtual tour in the Rocket Guide to New Caledonia.

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.
