Just a little way off the southern end of Grand Terre, Île des Pins (the Isle of Pines) gets its name from the tall columnar pines that stick out of the surrounding vegetation like bristles on a brush.
Kick off your visit on the 21st (Sat): step off the mainland to explore Isle of Pines, then contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, then kick back and relax at Kuto Bay, and finally make a trip to Upi Bay. Keep things going the next day: tour the pleasant surroundings at Oro Bay, then enjoy the sand and surf at Piscine Naturelle, and then make a trip to Vestiges du Bagne.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Ile Des Pins day trip planning tool .
