Anse Vata Beach in Noumea is the Windsurfing center of the South Pacific. You can walk out of your room at La Promenade Best Western Hotel (seen in the landward view of this sphere image) or the Nouvata Park Hotel hire a windsurfer, and go zooming off across the blue New Caledonia Lagoon. If you have never windsurfed before   just walk along the Promenade and look for the 2P8CE windsurfing school truck. You can rent from them or get lessons on how to do it from the experts.

The Noumea peninsula compresses SE to E winds and creates perfect windsurfing conditions in Anse Vata bay. On sunny days with 15 to 25 knot winds you can see hundreds of windsurfers racing each other over the blue lagoon.

This is an overview of Noumea

Noumea is the capital and vacation centre of the Islands of New Caledonia in the South Pacific. Noumea is a "French" city, but the 91,000 inhabitants are a very mixed cultural group with French, Melanesian, Polynesian, Indonesian, Vietnamese, and lots of mixtures of these. Over 60% of the population of New Caledonia lives in Noumea.

Noumea is a peninsula on the southwestern end of Grande Terre and the central business district (Centre Ville) is next to one of the best natural harbours in the South Pacific. The lagoon side of the peninsula has two picturesque bays with white sand beaches and is called Anse Vata and Baie des Citrons. These twin bays are the international tourism capital of New Caledonia with hotels, restaurants and bars on the landward side of "La Promenade".

First settled by the French in 1854, Noumea retains close political ties with France. It has excellent schools and public facilities - parks, recreation areas, exercise paths, schools and medical facilities. Today it is the fastest growing city in the South Pacific. There are 23 hotels in Noumea ranging from one to five stars and over 100 Restaurants.
