The Island Bungalows at l'Escapade Island Resort Noumea are ideal for families. They can sleep up to 4 people and each bungalow adjoins three others so larger families can stay together in adjoining bungalows.
Air conditioning plus a ceiling fan plus the shade of native island trees make these bungalows comfortable all year round. The bungalows on the eastern side of the island are only a few steps from the long, lovely beach that extends the length of the island. This is a favorite location for kite surfing and there is a kite surf school there for people who want to learn this exciting new sport.
Noumea is the capital and vacation centre of the Islands of New Caledonia in the South Pacific.

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.
