"Mahamate Beach" Balade Things to Do Tip by hunwagner

Balade Things to Do: 4 reviews and 7 photos


This stunning golden beach is near where Captain Cook anchored in 1774.
In 1843, New Caledonia's first Catholic mass was held here, too.

And even if it had no other claim to fame, the beach is one of the most singularly beautiful I have seen in New Caledonia, and well worth the short detour from the main road just for this reason alone! ;-)

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
