Traditional Kanak villages on the island of New Caledonia Nouméa

Nouméa is the capital of the French island group of New Caledonia, located in region of Melanesia, in the southwest Pacific. From Nouméa you can explore the rest of the main island of New Caledonia by car as the roads in general are in pretty good conditions.

Nouméa is home to the Amédée lighthouse, the world's second tallest lighthouse which was constructed in France and transported to New Caledonia in 1865.

The construction of the Amédée lighthouse was dedicated to Napoleon III and at the entrance of the lighthouse you will find a sign with the name of the French Emperor.
