      Place de Cocotiers - events

      Apparently on the first Sunday of each month there is an event in the square. I would really appreciate if someone could advise what it is and when would be the best time to visit. Merci.

      Does anyone know of any Noumea Dive Centers that cater to cruise ship customers who want to dive while there for a one day visit on a cruise ship?

      Wondering best currency for local shopping (we are Australian visiting on a cruise ship early next month) and interesting tourist spots / souvenirs / recommendations, only a day in each port. Is it easier to book tours on the ship ? I realise that they are more expensive but given time restrictions could be easier ?

      Precise estimation of the trasnfere tiem by taxi MAGENTA->TONTOUTA

      by Sergeyu Online Now Mar 8, 2008 at 5:42 PM

      I am trying to plan my connection from Magenta domestic airport to Tontouta international airport coming back from Ouvea and leaving to Vanuatu:

      17:40 scheduled arrival by Air Caledonie from Ouvea to Magenta
      19:20 scheduled departure by Air Calin to Port Vila from Tontouta.

      I've been once to Noumea and remember that there was a highway linking Noumea and Tontouta and that means that taxi drives ca. 90kph there and makes 40km from Magenta to Tontouta in appr. half an hour. Is it true, and for early evening Monday traffic?

      I guess AirCaldenoie on domestic flights can be not quite punctual.. At the same time I think airCalin with departure to Vanuatu should not very much strict if we appeaqr say not 45 min before the departure but only 30 min?

      How much does it cost to eat in Nouméa? I mean restaurants, cafes and groceries. I have read in the travel tips that imported foodstuffs are very expensive. But can you buy local produce at reasonable prices? If so, what is available? Is there anywhere that's cheap to eat out?
