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.
On the 21st (Sun), contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, tour the pleasant surroundings at Oro Bay, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Piscine Naturelle. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon): don't miss a visit to Upi Bay, enjoy the sand and surf at Kuto Bay, and then head off the coast to Isle of Pines.
