Walk and Fitness
The Pierre Vernier promenade stretches along the south coast of Noumea, between the Anse Vata and Baie Sainte-Marie. It takes its name from the former mayor of the city from 1929 to 1933, who was at the origin of the project.
It is an entirely walking trail sheltered from the road by a fence, and is great fun for families and sportsmen who find a place to stretch their legs in a unique setting by the sea with the mountains that hem the horizon.
4 kilometers long and lined with coconut trees that provide welcome shade, it was supplemented by four sports areas, which are dispatched along the route. Elliptical, traction bars ... allow beginners and sport experts a moment of outdoor fitness.
The objective is to promote the free practice of sport accessible to all. Several parking areas along the route provide easy access. You'll also find benches for moments of rest or admire the scenery.
Rollerblade enthusiasts and bikes are not forgotten since a tarmac track of three kilometers has been added allowing them to indulge in their favorite sport in good conditions.
The walk is particularly popular in the late afternoon when the sun is less strong and the work day is over. Walkers alongside joggers, cyclists and families in a very relaxed and courteous atmosphere.
Along the way, is also the sailing school where you can familiarize yourself with sports.
So no more excuses and put your sneakers on towards the promenade Pierre Vernier!
