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.
Visit Piscine Naturelle and Oro Bay for some beach relaxation. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kuto Bay, get outside with Nokanhoui, and head off the coast to Isle of Pines.
