About Isle of Pines (New Caledonia)

New Caledonia's Isle of Pines deserves every accolade as one of the world's prettiest islands. It's the snow-white sand, crystal-clear turquoise waters and lofty pine trees that combine to make this a visually stunning port of call. The fact that its cultural authenticity has been preserved over the years makes it the most popular port of call on many South Pacific cruises.

First sighted by European explorer Captain James Cook in 1774, this island in the archipelago of New Caledonia earned its name because of its similarity to the Scottish Highlands. But in reality, with its blue waters and white sands, it could not be more different from the wild Scottish landscapes and moors. Araucaria columnaris is known as the Cook pine and the trees thrive around the perimeter of the island, providing a handy reference point to find the coast.

The island has a colourful history. Under Napoleon's instruction, New Caledonia became a penal colony in 1854 and was seized by France. The Isle of Pines fought off French colonisation and tourist attractions pay homage to its independent spirit. New Caledonia remains a French overseas territory, but power is gradually being handed back to the local population.

Today, the indigenous Melanesian population of about 3,000 people has the final say on the way their land is used, ensuring an authentic and low-key experience. There are sacred rocks and totems scattered throughout the island, but these attractions have not been over-developed.

You won't find mass tourism here, but cruise passengers receive a friendly welcome. There's enough to keep everyone happy -- from those who love snorkelling, swimming and exploring to history buffs. The coral reefs surrounding the Isle of Pines mean ships drop anchor and tender passengers to shore.

It is a short journey to the jetty where you will have immediate access to stunning Kuto Bay and Kanumera Bay, with snorkelling available at both. Watch for the abundant sea life including sea turtles that pop their heads up every so often. They can also be seen under the pier where passengers arrive. It's no wonder this destination has so often been described as the closest island to paradise.

    Voyager of the Seas - Royal Caribbean International

    Pros

    ** Inside cabins have 'virtual balconies' offering ocean views in rooms that normally have none

    Cons

    ** No consistency in main dining room, service and food ranged from poor to excellent

    Bottom Line

    ** A good choice for anyone seeking a fun and active cruise experience
