Something that Carnival didn't tell us about Noumea is that the ship docks in the middle of a container terminal and there's no way out of there other than by bus (which is $20 a ticket, or $100 for our family). So we bought bus tickets and they turned out to be totally worth it. The bus stopped at 7(ish) places and was on a loop, with one coming by every 10-20 minutes, so it ended up being a good option. We went to the markets (which in hindsight were no good for anything but local food, and you need French currency for the food). We also stopped at the beach and swam/snorkelled. The beach is nice and has good public toilets/change rooms and cafes nearby with free wifi. The snorkelling isn't very good compared to other islands, but its still better than just about anywhere you'd find south of Byron Bay. Read Less

This was a chilled way to explore the city with my daughter. In retrospect it was a bit boring. I wish there was a hop on/off variant. On the plus side, it was good to listen to the local culture and politics from the tour guide.

Great little 3 hour tour of the city and the bays. Fantastic tour guide who kept us entertained, informed and most importantly on schedule. Included a quick tea/coffee pastry stop over with free wifi. Also over in time to allow you to make use of the shuttle to go back into town and see anything else you might want to see. Would be good in all weather conditions. Read Less
