With its cliffs high above the waves, and its clear water contrasted with white beach, Maré’s wild beauty is a welcome addition to our Pacific Island itineraries.  Here you’ll find that the culture, as well as the atmosphere, makes for a wonderfully memorable experience.

A rustic island experience

Life's a beach on Mare, set between towering limestone cliffs and water so blue it looks fake. (We promise, it's real.) Squint out over the lagoon and you might just spot a dolphin or a dugong playing on the reef. You'll also see colours in the water unlike anywhere else in the world due to the amazing water clarity. With its proud Melanesian heritage, friendly French-speaking locals and endless visibility in the crystal clear water, Mare has it all.

Now imagine a perfect natural pool with crystal-clear water, where fish and turtles play tag among coral. These natural aquariums were created when the Loyalty Islands rose up out of the ocean a millennia ago. Cool off from the tropical warmth before heading underground to see the Loyalty Islands' other striking natural feature, its caves. Want to explore? We also organise inexpensive transfers to picture-perfect Yejele Beach. Magic.
