Teremba Bay or Baie Teremba, formerly known as Uarai Bay, is a bay in southwestern New Caledonia. Moindou Bay lies to the west and Chanbeyron Bay lies to the southeast, separated by Lebris Island. The La Foa River enters the sea through a swampy area at Teremba Bay from the northeast. A notable fort, Fort Teremba, known as being a prison for deportees, lies opposite the river mouth.[1]On July 12, 1922, France II ran aground on the reef in this bay.
