Noumea is the largest city and capital of New Caledonia. A French city, Noumea is often referred to as the 'Paris of the Pacific'. If you're after a spot of culture whilst you're in Noumea, head to the famous 'Tjbaou Cultural Centre', an architectural masterpiece, it's situated just 20 minutes from the city centre. Other places of interest include the ‘City of Nouméa Museum'. To get up close with nature, hike 'Mount Koghis' or visit ‘Aquarium des Lagons', where there are all sorts of tropical marine life, including glow-in-the-dark corals. Not forgetting the city's many beaches – they're great for sunbathing, swimming, windsurfing and sailing.
The main market is just on the waterfront at ‘Port Moselle'. Just a ten minute walk from the cruise ship terminal, this market is open every morning and, as well as fruit and vegetables; it has a selection of local crafts on offer.
The local currency is the CFP franc. Noumea is 10 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +10).
