Ouvea Tour Lekiny Cliffs
Ouvea Loyalty Islands New Caledonia

Ouvea tours include a walk to the uplifted coral cliffs in Lekiny Bay. The walk is usually done at low tide (at high tide you can do the tour in a boat). It's an easy walk at low tide over hard packed sand and takes about 2 or 2.5 hours there and back. The only difficult part is climbing up the ladder onto the ledge.

In this image you get a little idea of the size of this massive, uplifted coral reef because of the people standing on the ledge part way up the cliffs. See the Rocket Guide for information on how to join this Ouvea Tour.

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.
