Notre-Dame-des-Flots

in Bourail

  • Notre-Dame-des-Flots faces the sea from a hill overlooking Gouaro Bay, watching over the boats. It was a highly strategic site during the prison era, as it allowed you to see all the boats arriving in the bay.

  • The Notre-Dame-des-Flots statue watches over the ships from its hilltop site and offers a spectacular view of the mouth of the Néra, the surrounding valley and the whole of La Roche Percée beach. On either side of the Bourail Pass in front of La Roche Percée, you can see part of New Caledonia’s lagoon, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

    Notre-Dame-des-Flots is not far from the ruins of Gouaro Lighthouse and is an important reminder of the importance of ships during the prison era,...

    Notre-Dame-des-Flots is not far from the ruins of Gouaro Lighthouse and is an important reminder of the importance of ships during the prison era, when they brought provisions to the Bourail penal colony. Boats are still an integral part of life in Bourail today, whether for fishing or water sports.
