“Beautiful beach perfect for a swim”
Review of Yejele Beach

Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in Mare
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 February 2018

Mare was the destination on our cruise which I was looking forward to as there was NOTHING to do on the island. No shore excursions booked. Bus ($15 when booked on board) takes you from pier (Voyager of the Seas) to the other side of the small island to a beautiful beach with turquoise water with reef to protect the white sands of the beach. I would definitely go back to this island and this beach if i was on this cruise again. Drinks and food available and buses coming and going all day.

Enjoyed a few hours on the beach from our cruise ship. Beautiful to sit in the shade of the palm trees. Clear water with lots of colourful fish. Friendly locals, fresh coconuts. Could easily spend a week there!

One of Mare’s unmissable gems! Beautiful pristine waters with finest white sand! You can snorkel, swim or buy some food from the casual venders of the locals. If you don’t like the crowds, avoid the times when the cruise ship travelers there! 9am-1pm

While cruising we have visited Mare 3 times and taken the short bus ride to Yejele Beach. It's a great day, the water was clear, we snorkeled, ate, drank local Beer, drank from fresh coconuts and relaxed. The locals are lovely and we enjoy the little market they have before you get on the buses.

We were on a cruise ship and going to Yejele beach was the only option. So we bought tickets for the bus ($20 per person return, and there is no way you could walk it), and we were on our way. When we reached the beach we were surprised that it was long so it didn't feel overcrowded even though I would think at least 75% of the passengers got off the ship. The water was so clear and inviting. There were little shacks that were selling local food and icecream. They even had shacks selling alcohol ($5 for local beer $10 for vodka cruiser). And they took Australian money so no need to exchange to local currency. Just make sure you take small notes with you ie $5 or $10's.
The snorkelling was great, although the coral wasn't colourful like we saw in Fiji. But there were plenty of fish to be seen. Just be sure to take lots of sunscreen because we stayed there for hours. Such a beautiful place.
