SURFING THE LAGOON OF NEW CALEDONIA
You don’t necessarily think of New Caledonia as a surf destination? Well, you should! Though Grande Terre and the isles are sheltered from swells and rollers by the barrier reef, once you get passed this natural rampart, perfect waves abound! So unlike most surfing spots, you’ll need a boat to reach New Caledonia’s best barrels and crests. New Caledonia is not just a surfing destination but also a windsurfing, kitesurfing and paddling place.
Enjoy peaceful surfing rides in New Caledonia
Surfing the barrier reef is a unique experience, not suited for the weak hearted! Let the adrenaline work its magic and enjoy riding the thrilling border between lagoon and ocean. New Caledonia’s surfing spots are just as uncrowded as they are exceptional. Roche Percée in Bourail is the only mainland spot and the most well-known. The beach is hit by swell that rushes in through a gap in the barrier reef. Here you can enjoy leisurely rides.
