Maré is one of Loyalties islands offshore the East coast of New-Caledonia on South Pacific. Melanesian culture is alive and nature remains wild in most part of the island . The agriculture is traditional and it seems that pesticides and fertilizers are not used. Fruits and vegetables produced by families are of quality organic and testy. Tourism development seems under controlled due to the power of the traditional customary authority who traditionally respects earth and nature. The Nengone santal wood essential oil distillery must be visited to appreciate a model of successful sustainable development.
