Ile Des Pins ©
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 2nd (Thu), kick back and relax at Kuto Bay, contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, then step off the mainland to explore Isle of Pines, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Piscine Naturelle.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Ile Des Pins fast, fun, and easy.

Melbourne, Australia to Ile Des Pins is an approximately 9-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Melbourne to Ile Des Pins due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Melbourne in January since evenings lows in Ile Des Pins dip to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel to Noumea.
