Baie Des Citrons Beach Noumea New Caledonia
Noumea

Baie des Citrons beach is where everyone in Noumea goes swimming. It has been popular ever since Noumea was founded in the 1800's with big shade trees to picnic under, a broad expanse of sand, and clear shallow water to cool off in. Boats and windsurfers are not allowed close to the beach, it is dedicated for swimming. Baie des Ctrons is also the only beach in New Caledonia with a life guard.

There are many restaurants, bars and snack bars on the other side of La Promenade Rodger Laroche, popular for an after-swim meal and drink.

More About Noumea

Noumea is the capital and vacation centre of the Islands of New Caledonia in the South Pacific. Noumea is a "French" city, but the 91,000 inhabitants are a very mixed cultural group with French, Melanesian, Polynesian, Indonesian, Vietnamese, and lots of mixtures of these. Over 60% of the population of New Caledonia lives in Noumea.Noumea is a peninsula on the southwestern end of Grande Terre and the central business district (Centre Ville) is next to one of the best natural harbours in the South Pacific. The lagoon side of the peninsula has two picturesque bays with white sand beaches and is called Anse Vata and Baie des Citrons. These twin bays are the international tourism capital of New Caledonia with hotels, restaurants and bars on the landward side of "La Promenade".First settled by the French in 1854, Noumea retains close political ties with France. It has excellent schools and public facilities - parks, recreation areas, exercise paths, schools and medical facilities. Today it is the fastest growing city in the South Pacific. There are 23 hotels in Noumea ranging from one to five stars and over 100 Restaurants.
