The Hotel Paradis d'Ouvéa is built right on the Beach. The sand comes right up to the big sliding windows and the terrace of the beach bungalows. You can walk out of your bungalow in your bare feet and walk out onto a 7km long beach of soft white sand. The Ouvéa lagoon is clear and shallow. The beach sand extends far offshore giving the water a luminous turquoise glow. For more information and to make your reservations at the Hotel Paradis d'Ouvéa click here.

This is an overview of Ouvea Loyalty Islands New Caledonia

Ouvea Atoll is the northernmost of the four Loyalty Islands. The eastern side of the atoll was uplifted millions of years ago so the whole eastern side forms one long narrow coral island with one of the world's most spectacular white sand beaches along the proctected lagoon.

Ouvea is a 40 minute flight from Noumea, New Caledonia aboard Air Caledonie's new ATR turboprop planes. There is one 4 star Ouvea hotel - the Paradis d'Ouvea - two "Gites" and 6 "tribal stay" accommodation. There are also two managed campsites.

Ouvea is popular with visitors - especially Japanese visitors - primarily because of the breathtaking beauty of the beach, but also because of the clear protected waters and coral reefs that offer great diving, interesting walks and annual festivals to attend.

Two distinct cultural groups live on Ouvea, the Polynesian speaking people of the northern villages and the Melanesian speaking people of the southern villages. All of them also speak French and are French citizens because New Caledonia is part of France.
