Ouvea Tour Paradis Beach Ripple
Ouvea Loyalty Islands New Caledonia

The most enjoyable time to do the Mouly Beach walk is at low tide. Then the beach is at its widest and the vast expanse of blinding white sand is an ecstasy.

The beach is so flat you can easily see the clear lagoon water sliding along the ripples in the sand as the tide begins coming in again.

To be first on the beach in the morning, pick up a copy of the Travel Guide to New Caledonia and make your reservations.

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.
