POE beach, powered... - POE beach is one of the large range for KiteSurfing spots in New Caledonia... Blue lagoon with sand under for safety. Going to the reef bareer is as simple as quality of wind... Try it to see how cool it is... wind season from november to march (summer season comes with wind ;-))... with incredible sensations...
