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 29th (Mon), explore the activities along Kanumera Bay, then stroll through Oro Bay, and then kick back and relax at Piscine Naturelle.

To find maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Ile Des Pins route site .

Canberra, Australia to Ile Des Pins is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Canberra to Ile Des Pins. Traveling from Canberra in July, you will find days in Ile Des Pins are a bit warmer (26°C), and nights are much warmer (20°C). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) early enough to travel to Noumea.
