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.
Start off your visit on the 11th (Thu): explore the activities along Kanumera Bay, stroll through Oro Bay, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Piscine Naturelle. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 12th (Fri): don't miss a visit to Upi Bay, kick back and relax at Kuto Bay, and then step off the mainland to explore Isle of Pines.

For ratings, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Ile Des Pins travel route planning app .

Traveling by combination of flight and taxi from Noumea to Ile Des Pins takes an hour. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in July, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
