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 28th (Tue), head off the coast to Isle of Pines, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Piscine Naturelle, then enjoy the sand and surf at Oro Bay, and finally stroll through Kuto Bay.

For where to stay, other places to visit, topicsMoreInfo.option.ratings, and tourist information, use the Ile Des Pins 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. In January, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Tue) early enough to travel to Noumea.

Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Bring the kids along to Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie and Plage de la Baie des Citrons. Tjibaou Cultural Center and Galerie d'art LEC LEC TIC will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Noumea: Eglise de Bourail (in Bourail) and Fort Teremba (in La Foa). There's still lots to do: visit a coastal fixture at Amedee Lighthouse, examine the collection at Musee de Nouvelle Caledonie, take in the spiritual surroundings of Notre Dame Du Pacifique, and stop by Vakarm.

To find topicsMoreInfo.option.ratings, photos, and tourist information, go to the Noumea route planning app .

Getting from Ile Des Pins to Noumea by combination of taxi and flight takes about an hour. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
