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, enjoy the sand and surf at Kuto Bay, and then explore the activities along Kanumera Bay. Here are some ideas for day two: kick back and relax at Piscine Naturelle and then kick back and relax at Oro Bay.

To see maps, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Ile Des Pins day trip planner.

Sydney, Australia to Ile Des Pins is an approximately 10.5- hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and bus; or do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Sydney to Ile Des Pins due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Sydney in April, expect Ile Des Pins to be somewhat warmer, temps between 31°C and 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Noumea.
