Pick up a little french before you go and practice speaking it. The people of New Caledonia speak very fast compared to those in France and there is still places where english isn't spoken (particularly the best restaurants away from the tourism!) While the main land (noumea) has great shops, restaurants and cafes, you must visit the outer islands like the Ile de pines! It is so beautiful and not to be missed!
