Ouvea Cliff Beach New Caledonia
Ouvea Loyalty Islands New Caledonia

One of the great pleasures in life is the beach walk from Lekiny bridge to the Village of Mouly on Ouvea Atoll in the Loyalty Islands. It's best to do it at low tide where you can walk down by the water where the sand is firm or up at the top of the beach where the sand is warm and soft. The changes in the sand alters the way you walk so you use different beach walking muscles - otherwise the 12 kilometer long sandy walk to Mouly and back will frazzle your toes. Of course you can take hours (or even all day) to do it, stopping to take pictures of tiny sea shells in the tideline or flopping down in the clear calm lagoon water to float for awhile, or sitting in the shade of the trees at the top of the beach for a cool drink and a snack. For full details on getting to this enchanted beach see the Tourism Guide to New Caledonia.

More About 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.
