Amedee Lighthouse, Noumea

The first metal lighthouse constructed in France, Amedee Lighthouse sits inside a World Heritage-listed lagoon. The island features white-sand beaches and teal-blue waters and lures snorkelers and swimmers with its coral reefs, where tropical fish, turtles, and starfish await. When you visit the lighthouse, wear comfortable shoes and climb 247 steps to the top to take in views of the lagoon. Be aware of the island's snakes, and look out for their tracks in the sand.

  • Lovely day at the lighthouse. I went with the Mary D company and is was fantastic. The day included music, drinks and buffet (Really Good). Note: There are heaps of snakes but that should deter you!  more »
