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.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: head outdoors with Nokanhoui, explore the activities along Kanumera Bay, and then head off the coast to Isle of Pines.
