Located to the south-southeast of Nouméa, the Amédée Lighthouse is easily accessible, just 40 minutes by boat. Two options are available for reaching it: the taxi-boat or the Mary D ferry. Several companies operate the crossings to îlot Amédée from Port Moselle in the city centre or the ports near Baie des Citrons and Anse-Vata. The Mary D agency offers one-way round trips or day packages, which include various on-site activities, entertainment, and a sumptuous Oceanian buffet. Keep your senses engaged during the journey; your guide will provide valuable insights about the islet, the lighthouse, and the surrounding marine reserve!
