This is our favourite beach in Noumea. It is just off the main road so easily accessible. It is a long beach. The water is calm and still. It is fabulous for all sorts of nautical activities.

Really nice beach, sheltered from the wind. Was never that busy, nice soft sand, great swimming and the kids can see plenty of fish very close to the edge. Good range of bars and food local as well.

Great beach, spacious and away from the wind! Lovely light and it is nice and safe to swim here. Probably one of our favourite near Nouméa.

Funky trendy each area not as busy as Anse Vata. Lots of little breakfast restaurants, sparkling water and lots of aqua sports. A fun place to be and better than the other options.
