If your looking for somewhere to dine before you indulge in a few cocktails, this is good area to be in. You will find live bands and music until the early hours.

During our 6nt stay this is the closest beach, water is clear and warm and the edges either end of it are great for snorkelling we saw sea turtles, clown fish, whip rays and lots of various other sea life.

Noumea has suffered the scars of progress, but Citron Bay remains vet pleasant and well worth a visit if you are calling into Port at Noumea.

Baie des Citrons or Lemon Bay - is a lovely beach with white sand and clear water. Great for swimming and safe for kids. Lots of shade under the trees which edge the beach. Also great for beach walking and sunsets in the early evening.
