Fantastic clear water and plenty of fish for snorkelling, and the lunch was great, lots of sea food, roast and sweets. We rate this trip as the best part of our stay in Noumea.

“Beautiful place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

we spent a day trip going to the lighthouse and had a wonderful day out. The island is small but you can find a spot to sit on the beach and relax or go exploring. I went snorkelling and the water really is crystal clear and really warm. It's a great place to relax and take in the views.Not so sure about snorkelling with so many sea snakes but the guides assured us that they were relatively harmless - just take a deep breath and hope for the best was what my guide told me!!

“Awesome Lighthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

I got an invitation of my roommate (Wellington NZ) family to visit them at Neumea and they took me to see the first attraction in this capital.
"Le Phare Amédée" is an iron lighthouse located on Amédée Island, 24 km away from Nouméa, New Caledonia, was constructed on this island by a mixed team of French soldiers and local workers, later to be a major naval architect both for France and for Japan. It was lit for the first time on 15 November 1865.
Try the glass bottom boat is very interesting if you coming with kids.
Also you can have a tasty lunch and amazing view.
A bien tot Nouvelle-Calédonie était très bon pour pratiquer mon Français rouillé.

My most enjoyed day in New Caledonia. Full package through MaryD.

Perfect location, crystal clear waters and delicious lunch. Lot's of photo opportunities and time to just sit back and enjoy the sun and sea.

“Lovely relaxing day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We liked everything. The relaxed crew, the good food offered, good wine also. The boat ride and the activities whilst there. The glass bottom boat was very good, although the commentary was only in French.
