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 30th (Sat): kick back and relax at Piscine Naturelle. Keep things going the next day: enjoy the sand and surf at Oro Bay, then kick back and relax at Kuto Bay, and then explore the activities along Kanumera Bay.

Plan my day in Ile Des Pins using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
