We visited as part of the Choo Choo train tour. The view is good but it's run down and the building is apparently going to be replaced soon. If you have nothing better to do, come and take a look.

Beautiful sunset view. Come up with a car if you can for a quick stop and a snapshot. Good thing to tick off the list

Shabby, derelict place. I'm not very keen on Noumea as a whole anyway and this part of it was no different to what I thought of everything.

Nice short walk up the hill for great views of the noumea sunset. Use a clear day. Many points from where one can watch.

The drive was good and the place gave good view of the bay. Enjoyed the place as it is very quiet and peaceful.

I loved Noumea and I spent allot of of a day's wondering around looking at the sites and the wonderful architecture and being a typical tourist when I decided to take a ride up to Mont Coffyn. I would recommend you take a camera and try and arrive a sunset. This is one of those unexpected bucket list moments when... More

I spent most of a day in Noumea walking around & taking in the sites, being a typical tourist when I decided to trek up Mont Coffyn. Much to my disgust, I found a young couple having sex near the memorials at the top. Needless to say, this utterly disgusting lack of respect summed up my opinion of New Caledonia.... More
