Hang out at the beach of Ilot Maitre, a stretch of shoreline with white sand and clear blue water. Rent a beach chair and umbrella from the onsite resort or take your own equipment. Bring your snorkeling gear if you wish to explore the varied marine life just a few steps from the sand. Consider spending the night at one of the resort's bungalows, which sit directly on the turquoise water.

Ticks all the boxes for a relaxing few days spent in the sun, pool, snorkelling and other water activities. Over water bungalows awesome with plenty of turtles swimming underneath, although we also had a resident sea sneak hiding under the floorboards on our deck which was a little disconcerting! Make sure you bring snacks/lunches but not a lot of space in bar fridge (and no freezer) as we were not keen on buffet for brekkie, lunch and dinner! Pool opens at 9.30, and by 10am all sun loungers are reserved with peoples towels for the day, and I doubt the resort was even half full. Friendly staff and worth staying at least 3 days, but not much more. Added bonus that despite 10am checkout we were still able to spend the day using resort facilities and catch an afternoon ferry back to Noumea.
