By the bays
After nightfall, Nouméa locals meet by the Baie des Citrons (Lemon Bay) to enjoy a cocktail or an ice-cold beer with friends. One of the hippest spots in town, the bay serves as a great spot to sit back, relax and watch on as the sun slowly descends below the horizon. Claim a sofa or armchair facing the sea and embrace the beauty of this daily spectacle. Soak up the ambience and welcome the night with open arms.
Nouméa is full of restaurants serving up dishes from a variety of cuisines, from Indian and Chinese to French and Japanese. Diverse and packed with unique flavours, the city’s dining scene provides no shortage of opportunities to tantalise your taste buds.

The capital’s restaurants certainly have an appreciation for all things sweet, rounding off every meal with a dessert, so be sure to save room for a sweet treat or two.
