In Nouméa, Anse Vata is the mythical gathering spot for all windsurfers. Not a day goes by without it being overtaken by the frenetic ballet of colorful windsurf sails that speed towards the shores of Ilot Canard. For locals and visitors alike, Anse Vata is the perfect place to practice windsurfing safely.         


New Caledonia hosts many prestigious competitions throughout the year, including the final PWA world tour event. Outside Nouméa, windsurfing and kitesurfing can be enjoyed in many spots of Grande Terre as well as on the Loyalty Islands. If you’re a novice, no worries…you can easily learn to windsurf at any age and New Caledonia features famous spots that are ideal for beginners.
