Welcome to the Cruise Terminal

Prepare for your stopover in Nouméa

Ideally located in the heart of Noumea, the capital of New Caledonia, on the Ferry Wharf, just a stone’s throw from downtown shops and landmarks, the cruise terminal welcomes you to a pleasant, open-access space. Upon your arrival, you’ll find numerous services and shops: local crafts on the upper level, services and assistance on the ground floor, and tours and excursions on the esplanade outside the terminal to reach various surrounding tourist sites (museums, beaches, parks, islets, etc.). Cafés and restaurants are also conveniently located near the terminal. Make the most of this showcase of New Caledonia to prepare for your stopover and future stays in the archipelago.


Upon your arrival, discover a range of services available in the cruise terminal to help you make the most of your stopover, whether it’s just for a few hours or a full day.
