Noumea, New Caledonia

Noumea is the capital of New Caledonia in the South Pacific… the down-town area is as urbanised as a South Pacific island gets: shops, restaurants, museums, bars, and all sorts of attractions for the more than 100,000 people who visit each year. But if a nature fix is what you’re after, venture just a little way out of the city and up into the mountains for hiking trails and epic views over the bay.
