OK - so we're spoilt by amazing beaches, coming from Western Australia, but it's clean, the water is crystal clear and there aren't any annoying hawkers. It's really safe for kids and out of any wind. There are plenty of shops and restaurants just across...More

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.

It was a gorgeous atmosphere at the beach, some lovely little restaurants and shops around too. It was quiet when I visited in the morning, the locals were very friendly!
