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 12th (Wed): step off the mainland to explore Isle of Pines, then contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, and then head outdoors with Nokanhoui. On the next day, enjoy the sand and surf at Kuto Bay, enjoy the sand and surf at Oro Bay, and then stroll through Piscine Naturelle.
