Once again a nice safe beach. Kids loved climbing the trees too. Amarino ice-cream and sorbets a real hit. Caught the bus back to Anse Vata.

great beach with no surf. Easily accessible and a great spot to relax and soak in the sunset. Plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from nearby.

Excellent wee beach to relax at. Heaps of trees along the bank. Showers and toilets scattered along the bay. Wooden seats and tables. Restaurants and convenience shops across the road. You can't ask for much more. And that is without mentioning the clear water. It is like warm bath water even in April!

Plage de la Baie des Citrons is definitely were the locals hang out on their free days. The beach is very pleasant with plenty of sand & also a lovely grassy area with shade for picnic's. The main beachfront has plethora of restaurants, cafes, & bars to choose from. It's an ideal area to relax & enjoy watching the locals... More

A lot more restaurants to choose from than the Anse Vata area. Seemed a tiny bit cheaper too, buzzing with locals and didnt appear to be too many tourists

We visited on a Sunday afternoon when the beach is full of happy Nouméa residents relaxing at the beach. There is a nice atmosphere. You can sit on the sand or find a shady spot on the grass under the trees. The water is calm, warm and quite deep close to the shore. There are many noisy bars across the... More

We went here whilst visiting Noumea on a shore excursion from our cruise ship. The beach here is stunning and is not far from anse vata beach. There's also a harbour with several yachts and smaller boats. A very expensive area but also very beautiful. Worth a visit.

A beautiful sun kissed and peaceful beach dotted with yachts. A little on the expensive side but relaxation at its best !
