Catch the local no 10 bus to the last stop and you’ll find a nearly deserted beach to explore. It is close to a resort with a snack bar, bar and restaurant. Worth a visit for 210 francs each way.

Hopped onto bus 10 from ansevata: went all the way to the end and found Kuendu Beach, where the local villages are not bright shops, grass reserves and a beach with one hotel, calm good for kids and to be away from the crowds.

Nice beach which locals enjoy. It is not well maintained I'm afraid so really nothing special. Decided not to stay as it was quite busy. Probably would not go again.

This beach is a bit out of the way from the rest of Noumea. It's worth the drive out. There are several quick stops on thew drive out to see the buildings of Old Noumea. The beach itself is pleasant. The real draw is the...More

A bit like the resort next door that has been left to rot the grassed area is no longer maintained which is a shame. This is a popular spot for the locals and big numbers are here most weekends. Unfortunately the beach has some rubbish...More
