Anse Vata is a great place for hanging out in cafes or restaurants, and the esplanade is nice for walking or jogging, but there is literally no beach at high tide, except for a bit at the western end. Maybe IRS a casualty of sea level rise, but it looks like it's going to be a victim of erosion. Also,... More

Great place in Nouméa to chill, enjoy the blue sea and eat some good food. It's laid back and not pretentious. You can see all kind of people. Sun bath during the day and party during the night. Great place to spend sometime.

Very pleasant to walk along and has great views. Water is crystal clear. With lots of little cafes across the road it's a very enjoyable place to be.

Smimming, wind surfing, snorkeling, walking and a game of boche. There is a good selection of restaurants, bars, cafes and shopping along this beach. As with any place in the world that you visit, it does pay to learn the basics of the local language, this will always get you a better experience.

This beach is lovely. Swimming is good and there is so much water activity for hire during the day. The evening sun sets are just amazing. You will take too many photos if you are there. After dinner stroll along the beach is just as lovely as the daylight. There are several people playing Petanc just off the beach and... More

The whole area was very clean and well maintained and the beach itself was alright but in my opinion nothing out of the ordinary. There were quite a few people enjoying the water activities and it was an easy place to relax. Shops and cafes were handy.

Awesome little beach, can stand up about 40m out at low tide, no waves just a relaxing area and a pontoon a little ways out that you have to fight the locals for, great fun.

When we stopped here for a few hours we went to the beach instead of shopping. They have a long dock, a few places you can swim out to, and showers on the beach. The water is warm, and very little weeds and such. We really enjoyed getting in the water and soaking up the sun. It is walking distance... More

We stayed at the Hilton directly across the road from this beautiful safe beach. Trees along the foreshore was very welcomed as it is very hot mid day but would be my favourite beach for swimming ever.
