Anse Vata Beach, Noumea

3.8
#1 of 22 in Outdoors in Noumea
A stretch of white sand, Anse Vata Beach provides nearly perfect kitesurfing and windsurfing conditions. Despite the windy conditions, the current usually stays calm and safe enough for children and inexperienced swimmers. If you prefer to snorkel, check out the mini reef by the pier. Take a packed lunch and picnic with friends and family on the spacious grassy areas, or walk just across the road for some cafes and restaurants.

    Beautiful beach, we can if wandering around there are also small shops and small bars for nice evenings with friends. There are also areas with grass. Little shade provide an umbrella for children. It is lined with Palm with sand. However this beach is quite windy so popular with skateboarders and windsurfer. This is the starting area for the taxi boats travelling on the islet to the ducks and the master island. There are also benches and picnic tables. A beautiful beach.

    But as the beach is not a much. Not wide. Very windy. But at least there are showers and chemical toilets. It is ideal for walking or jogging.

Where to stay in Noumea

There are few budget options in Nouméa, but a good selection of mid-range hotels. Most are concentrated in Anse Vata, at the southernmost tip of the peninsula, where you'll find palm-fringed beaches and plentiful bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. For something a little more central, consider one of the comfortable hotels around Place Des Cocotiers. The picturesque square is close to the marinas and cathedral, and makes a great base from which to explore the city.
