Travel by coach with an informative guide, and take in the local lifestyle. There’s spectacular views of sheltered yacht marinas and picturesque beaches and bays at FOL Lookout. Next stop is the modern state-of-the-art aquarium where everything is natural; saltwater, sunlight and a multitude of different fish. Discover a New Caledonian lagoon and the brilliance of a coral reef and its inhabitants: angel fish, napoleons, gorgonia, striped fish, fluorescent corals and a live prehistoric nautilus. Related to the octopus, it is the only cephalopod to have a true external shell. The spirally coiled, chambered shell is perfectly proportioned and has fascinated naturalists, mathematicians and physicists for years.
Breathtaking ocean views can be appreciated from the FOL & Ouen-Toro Viewpoint. Please note however that there is no Flash Photography allowed inside the Aquarium.
Please wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, a hat, and SPF30+ or higher factor sunscreen and bottled water.
Please respect local customs and traditions, some of the sites visited on this tour are sacred grounds to the locals and guests must remember to respect this custom. Please stay on pathways at all times and listen to the instructions of your guide.
