(The only beach break in New-Caledonia is at the Roche Percee beach, just 10 minutes walk from Nekweta Surf Camp. Most of the time surfing happens on the reef breaks because only big South-west swells get the Néra rivermouth beach break going. The reef breaks located in the Bourail pass vicinity are amongst the top 20 waves in the South Pacific.)
New Caledonia is a short 2.5 hour flight from Sydney, 1.45 hour flight from Brisbane and 3 hour flight from Auckland. Air Calin, Quantas and Air New Zealand offer daily flights to Noumea. Upon your arrival into Tontouta international Airport you will be met by Manu the owner and transferred to Nekweta Fish and Surf Camp an 1.5 hours drive north of the airport.Access & Parking Info / Cost
