A lot of people take the flight from Paris to New Caledonia simply for the beaches. Think of Cancún for French people. Windsurfers and kiteboarders head to Anse Vata, a wide, gorgeous beach on the windward side of Nouméa. Go to watch some beautiful, strong bodies enjoy the wind sports and to watch other beautiful bodies wearing half a bathing suit. Take your own body out into the warm water, and experience the thrilling sensation of waves shifting the sand beneath your feet.
