Lékiny Cliffs

The majestic cliffs at Lékiny stretch for nearly 3 kilometres and are about twenty metres high at their highest point.

Following numerous geological upheavals, the Ouvéa atoll gradually collapsed in the west, giving rise to the islets. On the eastern coast, the land rose to form these high coral cliffs, sculpted by erosion. To access Lékiny Cliffs from the campsite, there are two solutions: a glass bottom boat at high tide, or on foot at low tide. A short wooden ladder allows you to climb to the first floor of the grey cliffs, where a shaded balcony leads to a small cave that has been converted into a chapel. On one side, the turquoise softness of the lagoon, on the other the deep blue of the ocean that breaks furiously at the rear of the cliffs.

Protected from the prevailing winds by the cliffs of Lékiny, and closed on the northwest by the bridge of Mouli, this body of water shelters a rich and varied assortment of marine fauna: multi-coloured fish, turtles, manta rays, barracudas etc. Designated as a natural and traditional reserve, swimming in the Bay of Lékiny is forbidden, but it remains a feast for the eyes.
