Ouen Toro Anse Vata New Caledonia
Noumea

Ouen Toro provincial park is on a small hill on the southeastern end of Anse Vata. On top of the 132m high hill you'll find two WWII canons and a wonderful panoramic view of the New Caledonia lagoon. The biggest canon points East towards Baie de St. Marie with Mt. Dore in the background. To the southwest and you can clearly see Ilot Maitre with l'Escapade Island Resort.  The westerly view - behind the New Caledonia Pine trees - looks down on Anse Vata beach and the main international tourism center of Noumea hotels with the lovely Complexe Nouvata Parc andLa Promenade hotel New Caledonia.

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.
