Although Plage de la Baie des Citrons remains one of the busiest beaches in Noumea, it offers plenty of space for playful water lovers. The calm, shallow water is perfect for young children, and during the high season you can find rafts in deeper water serving as diving boards. Lifeguards patrol the beach, but be sure to stay within the flagged areas for the safest swimming conditions. Look for restaurants and accommodations a walking distance from the beach.

Plage de la Baie des Citrons reviews
Beautiful sheltered place to while away the day - great place to interact with locals and other tourists. Felt very safe and peaceful there - easy access to restaurants and shops as well. more »
Long expanse of beautiful beach close to town and on a large bay. Known as lemon beach. Popular with locals and tourists alike more »
Nice little beach, not as windy as Anse Vata, and not crowded. There are lively corals on the south side, where you can go for snorkeling. I’ve seen a stingray and an octopus, heard you can find turtles there sometimes too. Supposedly the Aquarium nearby takes care of these corals. At night this is the “party” beach of Noumea, many bars are located on the strip, and on weekend nights its very loud.
Too muxh Water Polution. Sad:(
