Lots of coral on the beach and in the water. Wear reef shoes if you want to go swimming. Walked to the little church on the hill overlooking the bay. Lots of people got their hair braided here.

We walked up to the church on the hill first, then walked back along the main road to Easo, not much to see there. They dont have many market stalls on this island. Went snorkeling and was loving it until i encountered the biting fish. They were only anout 10-15 cm but they charged at you and they bit you on your toes until you left their area. They were a lot of them in the water and a lot of people got bitten, they didnt leave marks or break the skin but were still scary. The bonus was the giant turtles were swimming around near the pier so you could swim along with them and touch them on the shell. Read Less

Snorkelling at Jinek Bay was excellent. Cost is $15. The island itself was hilly and the swimming beach wasn't very big but it was very pretty.

Short walk, tiny cave, "hunting" experience was really basic. Disappointed. Also, cruise line made this one VERY difficult to book. Didn't even have it available until we were on the ship.

Lifou is a lovely island, of all of my favourite pacific islands its not high on my list but certainly I have also had some great days there, My son and i wanted to get in some snorkeling, we bought all of our gear along and hardly got to use it so here was our final chance, we could have paid $15 each to walk to the other side of the island at Jinek Bay, I have done that before and it is stunning but i didn't want the walk, hate that i have to pay the cruise ship and on my previous trips i have seen turtles right near the dock where the tenders come in so we went snorkeling there. Unlike other areas the water gets to a good snorkeling depth quickly with good clean access, the coral is not as nice and there isn't as many fish but that's not why I went there, I was hoping to see and swim with turtles and as it turns out I was in luck. I was following a large flounder taking some photos when a group of people started yelling "TURTLE", I looked up and they were pointing right in front of me, it didn't take me long to forget about the flounder I had been following around when i saw a medium sized turtle about 5 metres in front of me, i swam closer keeping a distance so i didn't scare it, taking photos but the crowd kept saying "over here", they didn't realise i was already watching a turtle feed on sea grass but to satisfy them and myself I went over to check out where they were pointing to find a much larger turtle. I followed it around for what must have been 15 or 20 minutes taking some photos and video Of course by now a lot more people wanted to snorkel there but that's OK I didn't mind sharing, what i noticed though is that the larger turtle didn't seem to take any notice what soever that i was there, it obviously saw me and others so i got closer and closer to the point where I was diving down About 2 metres right beside it watching as it fed, i started patting his shell from behind (I learnt the day before that they actually can feel it through their shells) again it just kept feeding so I kept playing with and swimming around with my new friend as he ate sea grass. If anybody finds my new friend please say hello but please also keep your hands away from its mouth and only touch his (presuming it was male) shell from behind, while not aggressive in the slightest they can be curious and one bite could easily take fingers and touching his shell wont hurt him Read Less

This was my favourite port - we walked from the beach where the tenders dropped us to two places: 1. Jinek Bay for snorkelling 2. Cave with fresh water pool. Both excellent and lots of fun. Walk to and from cave is very steep and I paved through a little jungle so recommend sturdy walking shoes and reasonable level of fitness. Read Less

We were happy with both those areas and while I wouldn't be fussed not to di the cave next time I would definitely pay againvto use the snorkel beach. The fish were so amazing and the water was more protected. Read Less

Went for a walk to the Church on the point. I am currently a big girl, but, I made it up that steep hill on a very hot day 38 degrees celcius. Was beautiful. The Explorer crew were very well organised and moved a lot of passengers very efficiently to and from the island. Some of the locals a bit opportunistic, particularly selling beers at $10AUD. The people in the markets friendly enough. Read Less
