Noumea or Samoa?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are looking to get away for about 10 days late June, and are currently looking at deals for Noumea and Samoa. We're having trouble deciding which would be the better option. We've already been to Vanuatu and Cook Islands and enjoyed them both. We're on a mid-range budget, looking at accommodation around the $AUD 150 - $200 mark. We don't mind self-catering if that seems to be a better way to go. We're looking to spend time on the beach rather than by a pool. We're not looking for nightlife or bars. This holiday is really to get away from it all and relax.We also want to be able to do decent day-trips. E.g. to take photos, see a bit of island life, and do some easy walks. We would either be hiring a car or paying for a guide/tour.

Any advice on whether Noumea or Samoa would suit better would be much appreciated.
