THE TOUR:    

Code:
FT06             

This is an easy and relaxing tour, with big discounts for SENIORS Card holders, that starts with a drive through the Noumea countryside, with a stop at the famous Spring Water, and then on to quiet and picturesque Carcassonne Beach where you will enjoy a traditional Melanesian bougna feast under the trees. This is a traditional dish comprising taro, yam, sweet potato, manioc, banana, chicken or fish, cooked in coconut milk. Local beer and French wines, pastries and cheeses are also included.

For the energetic passengers, there's also an option to hire stand-up paddle boards at Carcassonne beach.

After the bougna, the tour continues on a different route that takes you through the beach resort areas of Ansa Vata and Lemon Bay before returning you to the ship.
