Nice promenade to wander along in the morning or evening. No bars to speak of like Baie de Citron. NIce shallow lagoon beachfront and spots to stop and watch the petanque in the afternoon

A long way to the water across broken coral at low tide. Place has lots of restaurants and specialty shops but no supermarket or general store for some distance. There is a nice cheap bakery in the shops at the Hilton - recommend the croissants.

We spent the day riding bicycles around Anne Vata and Lemon Bay. These beaches are lovely although quite populated during the warm weather. Good swimming and great place to sun bathe with heaps of places to eat.

I was at first skeptical about facing south from the Hilton which overlooks this beach but it was good, not at all cold.

This is a nice place to have a day out and swim. The water is nice and perfect, especially on a hot day. There are many shops and restaurants as well as the hotel around the area, just across the beach. Also great for jogging...More

Anse vata is the perfect choice for a relaxing week in Noumea. The beach is beautiful, lots of happy visitors and local swimming in the clear clean water. Water taxis are cheap and run often out to the small islands where you can swim, snorkle,...More

A beautiful beach indeed - just imagine the sand has been replenished from recent cyclonic erosion and it’s just as glorious as the postcard pictures show. There’s the action beach in front of the Chateau Royal and Le Meridien - it draws tourists and locals...More

The weather dominates activity. The beach dominates the type of activity. Good to see so many active people in a community. Food overrated. Public amenities such as toilets and fresh water in short supply.
