We walked up- a fairly easy walk. On the way up we used the walkways and came down the road, both of which were lovely. It was a bit of a scrum at the top with cruise ship passengers on mini buses, coaches and the...More

Great viewing point in Noumea. Don't miss if you take a tour to the island. Get away from the city for sure.

You need to be in good shape to do this walk as it’s all uphill and there are some parts of the track that require a little climbing. Set among vegetation typical of the southern hemisphere, it was a welcome, mostly shady respite from the...More
