Nekweta Surf Camp is a privileged venue, in a special place, with a maximum capacity of 10 guests. The buildings respect Oceanian and Melanesian architecture. The atmosphere and service are personalized and authentic. Manu, the owner, also has 2 bed and breakfast rooms available at his house, a 100 meters down the road. One room is furnished with a double bed and a ventilator, whilst the other room has air conditioning, one double and one single bed. Sheets, covers and towels are supplied for all accommodation types.
All guests will enjoy the place for its calm and serenity, topped by the soothing sound of waves splashing on the nearby beach. This tropical haven, located on the Roche Percée headland, surrounded by mountains, the Néra River and the Pacific Ocean, is a magic place. The lagoon, the ocean, the river and the mangroves combine to deliver a beautiful array of biodiversity and Nëkwéta sits in a central location.
The Roche Percée beach faces the Bourail pass, which is the widest and the closest to the main island’s west coast, and hosts the island’s only beach break. The shorebreak’s rumble is a natural indicator of swell size and direction much appreciated by surfers.
Nëkwéta Surf Camp is set up in a luxurious tropical garden, just 200 meters from the Roche Percée (Pierced Rock) beach. A charming and comfortable Melanesian style hut, built with timber and river stones sets the authentic Caledonian atmosphere. The hut is fully furnished with artful wood work and counts 2 double beds on the mezzanine and 2 single beds on the ground floor. The bar and dining-room are in a large open Faré where a massive table made of local timber sits, surrounded by the garden’s vegetation, for the guests’ delight. In the garden a hamac awaits for blissful naps. The facilities are in a separate block, in true local fashion, and count 2 hot water showers and a WC .
The cuisine is essentially made of fresh local produce. All meals are on order only. The culinary experience is enhanced by the set up. Guests can sip a drink while admiring the numerous sculptures and carvings, or simply sitting around the fire pit during fresh winter nights.

Nouméa sits on the edge of the largest lagoon in the world and has traditionally been a big windsurfing and more recently kiteboarding destination. It’s only in the last couple of years that New Caledonia has begun to reveal it’s potential for outer reef barrels to a waiting surf world. Though the waves that have been found here are the equal of anywhere else in the South Pacific, it is unlikely that New Caledonia is ever likely to become as popular as some of it’s neighbouring island states. The reason being is that these waves break on reef passes between 5-20km (3-12mi) offshore and are stretched along a 700km (435mi) ribbon of barrier reef, which is way too far for even the most hardcore of paddlers! This means that unless you can afford to be on an expensive charter yacht, or spend a couple of hours each day commuting, then you aren’t going to do a lot of surfing.
