Tour Code: NCP10  


The magical and mysterious island of Maré (Nengone in the local language) is the southern most and highest of the Loyalty Islands. It is the setting for many local myths and legends and just one look at it shows why. This is an island marked by its wild, untamed beauty – carved cliffs, dark forests and wonderful creeks nestling between the rocks. The central plain is made up of the old lagoon and is dotted with caves and natural pools which glow with iridescent shades of blue and green. Try taking some time out to explore the island’s many coves courtesy of a local guide. Discovering Maré is above all about meeting its people and the feelings experienced…
