Noumea: Beach at Baie des Citrons

The Baie des Citrons (Bay of Lemons) is part of Noumea’s long, landscaped waterfront. This particular bay was within easy walking distance of our anchorage in Baie de l’Orphelinat, so we stretched our legs to explore it. Most of the waters of the bay are reserved for swimming, with special lanes set aside for boat traffic.

The beachfront is a moderately upscale neighborhood – lots of cafes, clubs and restaurants. Today we treated ourselves to lunch out at an al fresco restaurant serving the food of Tuscany.

More to come on this experience…
