The Eoce trek is organized each year during the Fete du Wajuyu in the tribe of Roh, Mare, Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia. The young guide who leads the guided trek lives in Roh but his family came from the Eoce Tribe. The only thing you will see of this tribe today is a graveyard and some ruins of a house built by whalers.Two other tribes have vanished from this remote part of Mare.

The lovely little protected lagoon and beach is a 5 km walk over reasonably flat terrain, through native forests and sometimes alongside of an impressive limestone cliff.

By the time you arrive (it generally takes 2 hours) you will welcome a swim in the blue lagoon and some rest time flaked out on the white sand beach.

For those who don't want to walk all the way back, the guide arranges a power boat for the return trip. To keep abrest of the festivals and treks in Mare be sure to get a copy of the Rocket Guide to New Caledonia.

Questa è una vista generale di Mare, Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia

Mare Island is the southernmost of the four Loyalty Islands in New Caledonia. It is an uplifted coral atoll with jagged cliffs on the southern shores 130 metres high. The center of the island, the ancient lagoon, is flat and there are several caves and sink-holes - some with salt water and others with fresh water.

Air Caledonie offers two flights a day to Mare - a 40 minute flight. There is also a 3.5 hour high speed ocean going catamaran Betico II. 

There is just one Mare hotel, the Nengone Village Hotel, one Gite, two tribal stays, and one camping ground. The primary attraction for visitors are the wilderness walks, the snorkelling, the lovely beaches, and the festivals.

There is no public transport on Mare but there are small tour buses, taxis, and rental car agencies. The island is small enough that you can also rent a bicycle and visit many of the main tourism destinations.

As in all the Loyalty Islands the people speak their own local Melanesian language plus French.
