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 31st (Wed), explore the activities along Kanumera Bay, then enjoy the sand and surf at Oro Bay, and then kick back and relax at Piscine Naturelle. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: step off the mainland to explore Isle of Pines, then stroll through Kuto Bay, and then head outdoors with Nokanhoui.

To find reviews, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Ile Des Pins trip planner.

Sydney, Australia to Ile Des Pins is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time (New South Wales) to New Caledonia Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Sydney in July, with highs in Ile Des Pins at 26°C and lows at 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Thu) to allow time to travel to Noumea.

Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Step out of Noumea to go to Yate and see Parc Provincial de la Riviere Bleue, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sea views from Amedee Lighthouse, grab your bike and head to Promenade Pierre-Vernier, stroll through Anse Vata Beach, and step off the mainland to explore Ilot Maitre.

For traveler tips, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Noumea trip itinerary maker .

You can do a combination of taxi and flight from Ile Des Pins to Noumea in an hour. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
