Definitely worth getting off the boat for the day and visiting this tropical lagoon beach. It was colder in the water than i expected but saw some good coral outcrops. Food and drinks are available from beach side stalls and souvenirs etc

This beach was absolutely beautiful, loved every moment of being there. Beautiful white sand and clear blue water. Great markets, food and facilities. I met Pascale whose family owns the area and he was very friendly, and so welcoming of tourists

Yejele Beach was beautiful and well worth the visit. Stopped over on Carnival cruise through New Caledonia. Would be stunning if it were quieter, although as we were on a cruise it would be hard to have had the beach to ourselves.
