Mare New Caledonia Tour
Mare, Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia

This is the "bone" a 40 meter deep limestone sink-hole in the middle of the Island of Mare, Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia. A steel fence discourages people from approaching the precipice too closely.

It is an impressive natural phenomenon and one that is included on most of the tours of Mare.

For details on all the Mare tours and sites to see get a copy of the Rocket Guide to New Caledonia.

More About 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.
