Amadee Island is a 45 min fast ferry ride form Noumea. A simply must to day trip. I’m not usually one for ‘day trips’ as such – well, not really one for anything formally organised. But this was awesome! From the ferry ride out there, the beach, wildlife (read sea snakes, extremely venomous but also extremely docile) turtles, reef sharks, multitudes of fishes seen from the glass bottomed boat. The staff on the trips were knowledgable and friendly, happy to natter away to madam and answer her endless questions. We walked and swam and lay in the shade. Had a wonderful lunch with music and rum punch. It was a perfect last day.
Learning to snorkel. Fishes. Funny faces. Sailboats and storm clouds. Sunset. The Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre. Rain and mists in the far south. The beautiful waterfall was a highlight of what was a very interesting but very long day. We hired a car (nissan micra) and decided to drive over to the northern coast then back round through the south. just over 200km. 6h. I mistakenly didn’t pack a picnic. Smallest was amazing. As was hubby. The roads. Were not.
To be fully truthful I should add that the fishes were photographed at the aquarium – which I throughly recommend – awesome.
We flew out to Noumea on the island of New Caledonia a couple of weeks ago. A weeks sunshine and relaxing in mind. Hubby took the majority of the pictures which was lovely. We walked and played on the beach, snorkelled and ate fantastic french patisseries. Seriously we all but lived in baguettes, croissants and pain au chocolat. The pictures are in no particular order, more collections of areas. The main town, right outside our hotel and the marina. Walking through the Ouen Toro Park dry forest to the lookout at the top – with the huge cannons and views. Beaches and sunsets and rock pools. The petit Tchoo Tchoo train. A wonderful way to see round the town and the highlights. Also a must do if your 4. Views and relaxing. sunsets and silly shadow pictures.
Her expression captured by her daddy, while she was doing a ‘performance’ for him .. rock and roll this one.
Always talking. Always got an opinion. Always awesome.
