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 15th (Sun): step off the mainland to explore Isle of Pines, contemplate the waterfront views at Kanumera Bay, then enjoy the sand and surf at Oro Bay, and finally tour the pleasant surroundings at Piscine Naturelle. Here are some ideas for day two: head outdoors with Nokanhoui and then stroll through Kuto Bay.

For reviews, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Ile Des Pins trip planning app.

Brisbane, Australia to Ile Des Pins is an approximately 10- hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly; or do a combination of train, bus, and flight.
