#1 of 33 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. The place is frequented by the boarder fun. For swimming, it's good but not top because of exposure common to the prevailing wind. Beach where many events take place (international triathlon, race of rafts, fire of fireworks, etc...). Possible departure to the islets in taxi-boat.

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.
