Mare Yacht ChartersTake Me Back
Maré Island is a hidden gem amongst the French islands of New Caledonia. Find unspoilt beaches and little more to do than relax on the white sand or perhaps a little gentle snorkelling.
If you want to explore the untouched beauty of the island, you can head off to buy incredibly fresh produce in the local markets for a seafood lunch on the beach.
The island is often referred to as “L’ île de Maré” because it is a French overseas territory. It is located in New Caledonia’s archipelago and part of the Loyalty Islands Province, northeast of the mainland.
This coral atoll surrounds a former lagoon just 42 km long and 16 to 33 km wide in places. The higher ground is made up of a honeycomb of pools and caves. Cliffs overlook many of the beaches, including the natural beach of Yejele. Trading is the largest town and serves as the administrative centre for the commune of Maré. Characteristic Araucaria trees protect the flatlands near the beach areas.
