Ouvea Tour Lekiny Cave
Ouvea Loyalty Islands New Caledonia

The Lekiny tour includes a visit to a cave. In the old days the people of this area used to hide in the cave during hurricanes. There is a shrine in the cave that, according to our guide, was set up during those days and maintained to the present. It's easy to enter the cave and the cave is not very deep and well lit by sunlight from the entrance. To arrange your visit obtain a copy of 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.
