Noumea

Noumea is the capital of New Caledonia, a French overseas territory in the South Pacific. Situated on a large natural harbour on the main island of Grande Terre, Noumea is the largest city in the archipelago and is home to almost a third of its population.

Noumea has a tropical climate with warm temperatures year-round, and is known for its white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters. The city is also a popular destination for watersports, such as sailing and scuba diving, and its vibrant nightlife.

The city has a unique mix of French and Melanesian cultures, and is the hub of business and government in the region. Noumea is home to the University of New Caledonia, the French High Commission, and the main port of entry to the islands.

Noumea has a long and varied history. It was first settled by the Kanak people, who have lived in New Caledonia for thousands of years. In 1853, France annexed the archipelago and established Noumea as its administrative centre. During the Second World War, Noumea was occupied by the Japanese and served as a major supply base for their forces in the South Pacific.

Today, Noumea is a bustling cosmopolitan city with a unique blend of French and Melanesian cultures. It is a popular tourist destination and gateway to the rest of the islands. With its stunning natural beauty, vibrant culture, and rich history, Noumea is an unforgettable destination.
