Absolutely stunning tropical snorkelling and swimming beach about a 20min bus ride from the port, costing $9.50 one way...well worth it though! The locals have also set up little shacks at the beach selling food & drinks. Pretty much everything sells for $5 a piece....More

Beautiful beach and crystal clear water. Very well organised shuttle buses from ship. Life guards and portable toilets on beach which was an excellent idea. Snorkelling on reef areas were very popular and enjoyable. No hassle to buy things, just a superb location to enjoy...More

Our cruise had a stop in Mare, New Caledonia, and we decided to purchase tickets to Yejele Beach through the cruise line. It was about a 20-minute drive, and then we laid our eyes on this gorgeous white-sand beach. There was plenty of room to...More
