Ouvea Tour Mouly Beach
Ouvea Loyalty Islands New Caledonia

Two and a half kilometers west of the Lekiny Bridge you are half way between the Hotel Paradis d'Ouvéa and there's nobody but the two of you anywhere to be seen. The water is shallow a long way off the beach but it is really clear and calm and deep enough to float in. The sand is as pure and clean under the water as it is on the beach itself. For details on getting to Ouvea and where to stay when you are there see the Travel 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.
