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.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Fri): contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, kick back and relax at Oro Bay, and then stroll through Piscine Naturelle. On the 11th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: Head underground at Grotte de Hortense, thendon't miss a visit to Vestiges du Bagne, and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at N'Ga Peak.

To find ratings, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Ile Des Pins attractions planner.

Noumea to Ile Des Pins is an approximately 2.5-hour flight. Expect a daytime high around °C in April, and nighttime lows around °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel to Noumea.

Noumea ©
Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Amedee Lighthouse and Cathedrale St Joseph de Noumea are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Anse Vata Beach and Ile aux Canards island. There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie, head off the coast to Ilot Maitre, enjoy the sand and surf at Plage de la Baie des Citrons, and examine the collection at Tjibaou Cultural Center.

To find photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Noumea attractions planner.

Fly from Ile Des Pins to Noumea in 2.5 hours. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
