  • It was such a brief visit in Nouméa that we didn't really get to see enough of it, however we did wander around the square. It's a lovely park with plenty of places to sit without being overcrowded. We must come visit again.
  • Great place to sit in the shade and take in local Noumea. Wonderful cafe for coffee too.
