Isle of Pines has become my new favourite place to visit in New Caledonia.JUST BEAUTIFUL! No need to purchase a shore tour as there were 2 very beautiful swimming spots within easy walking distance and of where the tenders drop you off. We were given the advice from another cruiser to head for the rock, right when the road forked if we wanted great snorkeling and boy were they right. Best free snorkeling ever. We stayed out there for over 2 hours and th varieties and colours of the fish were amazing. Can’t wait to return. Read Less

The white sand is so impossibly fine and smooth, it was a real treal just to stand and sit on it. Huge,long beach - great for a walk. Snorkelling good too.

Isle of Pines has beautiful white sandy beaches close to where the ship's tenders drop you off. Food & drink stalls, knickknacks etc. Good snorkeling - plenty of things to see in the water.

Loved it here. Went snorkelling, off the boat on the right side of the island, beautiful and picturesque with heaps of fish near the big rock.

We opted not to do a tour from the cruise which were ridiculously expensive, instead we went to a local resort up the road and asked the local taxi driver to drive us to to the caves then on to the Pristine Natural were he picked us up around 3 hours later. During that time we swam, snorkelled, walked to ORO bay and around to the Le Meridian Resort where we brought a beer and ice-cream. What an adventure we had, not an experience a cruise tour could give you. We paid him $40 which was probably too much but he was so grateful. We then did more snorkelling at Kanumera Bay before boarding the ship. Read Less

We walked to the beach with the rock and snorkelled for a few hours. There are stalls with food and souvenirs. We didn't think it was worth buying an excursion for this island.

This is one of our favourites. Take your swimmers and snorkels. There is also a native market area. Island used to a penal colony and you can do tours around the aIsland and commentaries on the history. Great swimming beach.
