Beautiful beach minutes walk from lemon bay beach. If you are looking for a quiet spot this is it. You can enjoy sunning on the beach, there are also shaded areas with trees, and swimming and if you want to eat it is a short walk to the restaurants on lemon bay

Bonjour from Noumea, New Caledonia. We had a privately guided tour with the wonderful Vavau Transport Anne. Due to use being a party of 11, herself AND her husband treated us to the BEST Tour EVER. Her wealth of knowlegdge was immeasurable. Her kind demeanor and love of her country made the trip pleasurable. We avoided tourist filled hot spots, and discovered all the treasures this GORGEOUS Island has to offer ~ Harbourview, City Highlights, Peninsula of the Canons du Owen Toro, Anse Vata Bay to Lemon Bay, Cultural Centre, Chateau Royal and Local Markets. Noumea was our Oyster and Anne catered to all our needs.

Upon Arrival Anne N Mavae Fonua gifted each of us, our own Shell Lei Necklace, my child received his own personal French Gift, locally bottled spring water and we all recieved the most Delectable Noumea Chocolates along with Christmas Candy Canes 🎄

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED WILL NOT DISSAPOINT.

Lovely beach. Currently under maintenance with new boardwalk being built. Seemed to be around 75% completed along the Ouen Toro end end with the 25% yet to be done along the Aquarium end with good progress being made. Where the works has been done the boardwalk is lovely to walk along. Locals and visitors alike seem to come here to enjoy the beach and hanging out. Great place to be for sunset as it can be viewed very clearly from here.

Noumea is extremely expensive and this beach was closed to swimmers. There is very little other activities to do unless you have a windsurfer.

Firstly you can’t swim here due to the sharks. And you can’t even walk down the the beach due to roadworks and beach works. Overall Australia has better beaches absolutely everywhere. Save your money and stay somewhere else.

I have put a low 'average' score because of what the government has done, and is continuing to do, to the Anse Vata beach front. What on earth are they trying to do? The bay had a great mix of white sand beach backing onto a soft green grass embankment which was shaded by a mix of palms and other substantial trees. All the locals and tourists I spoke to loved having a comfortable shaded area to rest when they had had enough sun. Almost all the trees and grass have been removed along 3/4 of the beach and the destruction is continuing. Several popular water sports businesses have been displaced and prevented from doing business, or will be soon. The swimming ban was bad enough (statistically much higher chance of being attacked by a shark in Aus). Aside from the above, I absolutely loved the place, the people and the water sports and wanted to go back. Looking at the beach on Google Earth now, I have serious doubts.

Anse Vata beach is a very popular spot for tourists and locals. The water is warm and pristine. Close to a lot of coffee ships and restaurants as well. Highly recommended.

We couldn't easily get to the beach because there were temporary fences and earthmoving equipment everywhere. There is, however, a number of restaurants to choose from on the other side of the road.
It's probably pretty nice.

This is an excellent beach to have fun and enjoy the warm waters.
Lots of locals can be seen enjoying a day at the beach.

The taxi boat to duck island runs from here, but beware, they change their schedules at will and close for the day without notice.

Overall, great walking tracks here as well.

The beach has gin clear water with a load of sea life right at your feet – many fishes, turtles and rays in the early mornings and late evenings. Sea snakes (!!) were spotted when we were there and there was also a shark alert!

It is a very popular swimming spot for locals and tourists — and the reason it is so is very obvious – it’s a great beach. It is also patrolled so that is great for families so stay between the flags! There was a lot of work being done to the esplanade so in the near future, the whole beach strip will receive a very positive facelift and amenity.
