Ile Des Pins

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 15th (Wed), head off the coast to Isle of Pines, kick back and relax at Kuto Bay, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay. On the 16th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: enjoy the sand and surf at Piscine Naturelle and then enjoy the sand and surf at Oro Bay.

To find more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Ile Des Pins sightseeing website.

Sydney, Australia to Ile Des Pins is an approximately 11-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Sydney to Ile Des Pins. In April, Ile Des Pins is a bit warmer than Sydney - with highs of 31°C and lows of 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Thu) to allow time to travel to Noumea.

Noumea ©
Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Get a sense of the local culture at Amedee Lighthouse and Le Musee Maritime de Nouvelle-Caledonie. Bring the kids along to Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie and Ilot Maitre. Change things up with these side-trips from Noumea: Fort Teremba (in La Foa) and Musee de Bourail (in Bourail). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Tjibaou Cultural Center, stop by Maison de la Perle, head off the coast to Ile aux Canards island, and enjoy the sand and surf at Plage de la Baie des Citrons.

To see maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Noumea vacation site.

Getting from Ile Des Pins to Noumea by flight takes about 2.5 hours. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
