Lifou is a beautiful island accessed by tender boats. It's very hot so take water with you and money for drink (coconut or soft drinks available). They take AUS$ and NC Franc. Try to travel light or with a backpack. You may do a bit of walking if you choose to visit the church on the hill (worth it for the view and the butterflies) or Jinek Bay. We really wanted to go snorkeling at Jinek Bay but there were no tours on offer pre-cruise. The ship did not advertise that we would could only purchase permits to Jinek Bay on the ship so many of us were turned away when we rocked up expecting to buy them there. Really disappointed because it looked stunning. Had to make do with swimming on the main beach near the wharf which was still nice. Good idea to take reef shoes with you as the beach is covered in broken coral. Read Less

We went to the beach and snorkelled with the turtles. Great experience, great clear beach. Would have liked more time to explore. Highly recommend the visit.

Jinek Bay is world class snorkeling. $10usd is an absolute bargain. Unfortunately as there are no tours here everyone comes here even though they can’t swim and snorkel and will ruin the coral

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.

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

The fish were so amazing and the water was more protected. Read Less

We had perfect weather. We snorkelled off the beach, looked at the markets and went for a walk to the church. It was a really nice day.
