Paradise with a metropolitan touch
It may sound like a piece straight out of speculative fiction, but floating cities do exist and one place that stands out in that regard is Noumea. The metropolitan city of New Caledonia is known as the island’s economic heart but it’s truly a wonder how this thriving 21st-century capital still keeps its feet on the water.
Perched magnificently on a peninsular of bays, dry forests, and hills, Noumea tugs at the heart of travellers longing for a natural paradise with a touch of urban sophistication.
Noumea considers its diverse landscape as a priceless treasure. It’s a thriving economy surrounded by vibrant beaches, lush palm trees, and well-preserved parks and reserves. The beaches are among its crown jewels offering a whole heap of spirited activities from water sports to cultural exploration to food experiences.
As Australia’s closest Pacific neighbour, Noumea is just a two-hour flight from Brisbane but it takes way more than that to see and feel the very heart of this adventurous capital. With plenty to catch the eye – exploring Noumea on your own can be tedious without a pre-set itinerary or a well-organized plan at the very least. Your choice of accommodation and airline can have an impact on your overall travel experience which is why these Noumea holiday packages are put in place.
This 7-night Noumea Package is hard to beat. It includes roundtrip tickets from the trusted Aircalin and takes care of your accommodation in the luxuriously 4-star Chateau Royal Beach Resort & Spa. The resort is located opposite Anse Vata Beach, the city’s largest beach and one of its main attractions. After a day of sun-soaked fun, you might want to use your complimentary access to the Aquatonic Spa, where you are treated to soothing spa treatments and beauty rituals.
If you’re a snorkelling junkie, the Le Lagon Noumea is the perfect package. Aside from being only a few steps away from the pristine Anse Vata Beach, the gorgeous Hotel Le Lagon offers round trips to the amazing spot Iles Aux Canard (French for Duck Island). Don’t be fooled by the moniker. It isn’t inhabited by any quacking birds but by impossibly vibrant marine life and turquoise waters inviting you to dive in.
