Getting around New Caledonia
The most fun way to get around Nouméa is by the Little Train, a tourist train which visits the main districts. However, there is a good bus service (check for the white pillars and be prepared to have to speak French). There is also a special bus service which covers the main tourist sites in the region around Nouméa, which provides excellent value.
Getting from the airport to the city
Most people booking flights to Nouméa will arrive at La Tontouta International Airport, which is located 52 km northwest of the Nouméa. The majority of people arriving at the airport choose to rely on airport shuttles to take them directly to their hotel. Check to see if your accommodation provider offers this service. If not, it may be possible to catch a shuttle from one of the transport firms, but check before flying. Otherwise, taxis or car rental are fine options.
