Silversea Luxury Cruises A MARE ISLAND

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Mare Island

Gloriously undeveloped, Mare Island is a vision of tropical island beauty. Enjoy some of the most sumptuous beaches imaginable, and soak in the rejuvenating glow of the wonderful Loyalty Islands. Lie back to watch sunshine rippling on the water’s waves, or plunge in and scuba dive with the island’s jewel-coloured fish - who dance between the spectacular corals of this massive underwater eco-system. The barrier reef of New Caledonia is a valuable, immense World Heritage Site. View more

One of the world's longest barrier reefs, it blooms with endless coral beds and is alive with boldly-patterned sealife. Turtles drift below the waters, while the rubbery fingers of coral conceal clownfish sheltering within. Mare Island is the second biggest of the Loyalty Islands - an overseas territory of France - and you can discover its utterly unspoiled, richly beautiful landscapes, decorated with swaying emerald palm trees, which line fringes of pure white sand. Splash into intensely blue water at Pede Beach - or enjoy scenic Tadine Bay's glassy waters and blotches of coral. Hike through gorgeous forests of araucaria trees, which open up to reveal spectacular glimmers of turquoise seas and luscious stretches of secluded beach. Heaps of fresh coconuts sit waiting to be hacked open, along with wheelbarrows full of juicy mangoes, spikey pineapples, and pods fresh from vanilla plantations. Relax and enjoy the appetising island smells, as barbecues char up kebabs and lobster. Rocky cliffs, and reaching headlands, add to the island’s visual appeal - and you can visit Warrior's Leap, where legend says an island warrior once miraculously lept the seven-metre gap, leaving his pursuers to plunge into the abyss.
