Plage de la Baie des Citrons, Noumea

3.5
#3 of 9 in Beaches in New Caledonia
Beach Nature / Park
Although Plage de la Baie des Citrons remains one of the busiest beaches in Noumea, it offers plenty of space for playful water lovers. The calm, shallow water is perfect for young children, and during the high season you can find rafts in deeper water serving as diving boards. Lifeguards patrol the beach, but be sure to stay within the flagged areas for the safest swimming conditions. Look for restaurants and accommodations a walking distance from the beach.

  • Cartoon as we called in Noumea is a pretty clean beach where you can come as a family with children. She is clean there are showers to rinse off, then she is more cut wind protect.

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.
