Dumbea River is one of New Caledonia's larger rivers and the whole watershed is a protected area as it was once where Noumea got it's fresh water supply. There are wonderful walking trails along the river and here, far up on the north branch of the river, there are some of the most delightful swimming holes to cool off in; clear, cool and refreshing.
