See French-influenced Noumea from several different viewpoints, highlighted by a stop at the Church of La Conception, a hallowed pilgrimage site.


Drive through the popular Place des Cocotiers and then on to the FOL lookout point, where you'll enjoy sweeping harbor views. All the while, you'll be getting a feel for the cosmopolitan city of Noumea, whose atmosphere is so decidedly French that it's often referred to as the Paris of the Pacific.


Before long you'll reach the outlying district of Robinson and the Church of La Conception, which was built by missionaries in 1874. Each year hundreds of pilgrims gather here on August 15 to celebrate the Assumption, many of them leaving plaques to thank the Virgin Mary for favors and miracles. A statue of the Virgin Mary perches atop the church's dome, making the church easily recognizable, even from a distance.


Heading back to Noumea, you'll stop at the Ouen Toro lookout for a different perspective of the city. From this vantage point, you'll see a portion of New Caledonia's barrier reef, which is the world's second longest, only eclipsed by Australia's Great Barrier Reef. The lookout is also home to a memorial in honor of the Allied troops that protected New Caledonia during World War II.


Enjoy a refreshment at a local restaurant and a bit of free time to explore the shops in the Palm Beach Gallery before transferring back to the pier.
