NEAR TO HOTEL LE STANLEY: TINA GOLF COURSE
A course that, since 2008, now hosts a PGA tournament every year.
Located 10 minutes away from Le Stanley in an 80-hectare park, Tina Golf Course is a 5,600 metre-long, par 72 course that uses the varied local geography to maximum advantage.
After the first 9 undulating holes, in the midst of dry deciduous forest, you’ll be playing the other 9 holes at the edge of the mangroves and New Caledonian lagoon.
Enjoying the benefit of the trade winds for much of the year, the course always boasts a pleasant temperature. The elevated position of many of the tees means the course allows golfers to enjoy the magnificent scenery,whether looking towards the mountains or the sea.
Depending on the wind conditions,the course can be different every day and even change from morning to afternoon. .
In the cool season, morning players will in fact benefit from wind-free playing conditions while in the afternoon, a steady trade wind of 25 knots will completely change the course, especially as the mangroves or beach await players who have not gauged the wind correctly.

BIKE RIDES, MOUNTAIN BIKING & OFF-ROAD CYCLING
Cycling is one of the biggest leisure activities in New Caledonia, from the well-marked trails around the bays of Nouméa and Tina to the red earth pathways of New Caledonia’s Grand Sud. Calmly ride the length of the city’s beaches or hurtle along Grande Terre’s untamed pathways on your mountain bike, but don’t forget your helmet!
The horse still plays a significant role in New Caledonia’s world of agriculture. Horses in New Caledonia are well-bred and extremely well-treated. There are 19 equestrian centres, offering activities that range from a one or two-hour hack to a camping trip on horseback, crossing the central mountain range. Choosing to ride for a few hours between the mountains and coast is one of the best ways of discovering the true nature of New Caledonia’s bush land.
