If Nice can be rightly proud of their Promenade des Anglais, Nouméa's walkway along the Anse Vata Bay is equally as magnificent.
Between two large rocks, the Rocher César towards the pointe Magnin and the famous Rocher à la voile, on the Lemon Bay side, Anse Vata is one of the main tourist spots in Nouméa. On the east side, a pedestrian pathway runs along the long beach, the Roger-Laroque promenade, with many hotels, restaurants, bars, shops and night clubs.

Even though the bay is exposed to prevailing winds, you can relax on the grass, under a coconut tree. If you feel like doing some exercise, you can also use the newly installed work-out machines on the eastern extremity of the bay, by the sea. All in all, Anse Vata bay is really a must-see!
