We stopped over at Noumea on a P&O Cruise and decided to do the Escapade Island day trip.
Overall a great day. We were picked up from the Ship and transported by bus to the marina where we spent about 30 minutes looking around the local markets before departing to L'Escapade Island Resort.
The resort was fantastic. Lovely outdoor area's - a great pool and excellent snorkeling. We hired a jet ski and zoomed around and had a giant turtle surface near us - it was a great experience for my daughter.
My son and I spend about 90 minutes snorkeling around the various carol outcrops around the island.
The lunch provided was a French bagguet which was very enjoyable and we also tucked into a few local and imported beers.
We did a tour of the accommodation which was nice - although expensive.
Service was very good and there were no language problems – in fact all the locals were very polite and helpful – you just need to be polite as well and learn a few simple French phrases.
It was very enjoyable and I would highly recommend the trip.More
