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.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Sat): tour the pleasant surroundings at Piscine Naturelle. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: stroll through Oro Bay, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kuto Bay, and then explore the activities along Kanumera Bay.

Make your Ile Des Pins itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Auckland, New Zealand to Ile Des Pins is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. Traveling from Auckland to Ile Des Pins, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Auckland in November: highs in Ile Des Pins hover around °C, while lows dip to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) so you can travel to Noumea.
