Our favourite destination for sure. Just wandered down the beach and found a quiet spot away from the crowds. We spent the day snorkeling, spotting some turtles which we were able to film with the Go Pro. Just an enjoyable day on a white sandy beach in the warm sunshine. Tender worked well this day again.

We didn't take an organised tour of the Isle of Pines. Just went off the ship and walked around. Extremely hot, but beautiful waters.

Beautiful Island but with a ship the size of Voyager of the Seas, it becomes quite crowded onshore. Tendering was fast and efficient.

Lovely little island - great for swimming and snorkelling. Good to see something of the island though so would recommend a tour either from the ship or plenty on shore to choose from.

We LOVED this port! We didn't do an excursion here because the island is just so easy to go off and do your own thing on. We did attempt to get to the natural swimming pool, however the guide told us the "high chief" closed it to anyone that isn't staying at a resort. Okay, whatever. We still had a really fun time. The local kids were extremely nice and helpful and loved to show us the sea snakes and ride on the back of our kayaks. I'm glad they got to have a fun day on the beach! Snorkeling here is alright, not the best we saw but definitely fun for someone who maybe hasn't been snorkeling before. The current was calm enough for kids to snorkel as well. I was very upset to see many people stomping on and kicking coral, however. I didn't want to be "that person" but I did find myself explaining to people that coral is ALIVE and you shouldn't be touching it, much less stomping on it and kicking it around. I wish cruise lines had a mandatory presentation, perhaps before or after the muster drill, that explained the importance of leaving wildlife alone when out in ports. In a perfect world, this shouldn't have to be mentioned, but based off what I saw, it definitely should. There were some local food options available on this island, with a little bit of light shopping as well. We didn't eat on land, but it smelled good! I bought a few trinkets as I always do and they took AUD. There were stray dogs on this island, and although none of them seemed rabid or hostile, we did see them pee on a lot of people's bags and towels laid out. Fortunately, we had a bag we were able to hoist up onto a tree branch and we just hung everything that way. Read Less

If this is your first time to the island, take one of the island tours by the locals. It is inexpensive, you will still have time to snorkel around the bay. There is a resort at the end of the beach which charges a small fee to have a sun chair for the day and use their equipment. Nice place to relax Read Less

this is excellent because we never take excursions we just snorkel and relax on the beach. however it is expensive on the island - for an hour boat glass bottom ride it was $25 pp - and we didnt see much wild life.

this was great, drove around seeing some sights, highlight was the cave which we went all the way in, the driver didn't say much, it would have been good to hear some back story or information about the places and the island.

This is a tendered port. The beaches are within walking distance and some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. There is not a lot to do or see near the wharf but if you want to swim or snorkel, its perfect. A couple of shops with food rather pricey. There are lots of local tours advertised as you get off the tender - we took a 50 minute tour in small van for $15AUS which gave a good overview of the island which we found interesting. Read Less
