Ouvea Paradis Beach Low Tide
Ouvea Loyalty Islands New Caledonia

Low tide on the northeastern end of Paradis Beach in Ouvea - a vast expanse of sand rippled by the soft ebb and flow of the calm lagoon waters. Only one lucky beachwalker ambles by, just loving every moment. The Ouvea Lagoon is part of New Caledonia's World Heritage Site. See more lagoon images on the New Caledonia Pictures site.

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.
