On a drive around Isle of pines this was our 1st stop. There was a cruise ship in which hardly left an empty patch of sand. Had a snorkel which was ok, but piscine naturelle was much better. If it was not packed and a tad warmer it would be a lovely place.

Absolutely beautiful spot with sparkling clear blue water. We snorkelled around the rock and although the coral isn't colourful or much to look at, there are so many wonderful varieties of fish swimming around you that it is totally worth while! A lovely day was had by all of us :)

Stopped at a number of Islands on a recent cruise, although this was a beautiful island, the markets were average, the food and drink was expensive, very expensive! Yes I know we could have gone back to the ship for that, but you want to spend to on the island. Shop started to charge for the use of the toilet,... More

We arrived at Isle Of Pines on 01/10/2014, lovely sunny day, it was our first port of call on our cruise aboard the Pacific jewel, this is an anchor port which means you have to be taken onshore by tender (life boat), you have to be allocated a number to board the tender. After stepping onto the little wharf its... More

Sparkling aquamarine water, with interesting rock and coral formations. This was very beautiful, and easily accessible.

Isle of Pines was one of our three stops on a recent cruise, and by far our favourite. (also stopped at Noumea and Mare. ) Didn't get onto the Island until approx 11am .Tender boat dropped us of at Kuto bay and we took a short walk over to Kanumera Bay for some snorkelling. The bay is everything the pictures... More

Came here with Carnival cruise, this is the place with beautiful beach and crystal clear water you wanna be when you are watching those tourism commercials! I don't think you need to spend that extra $50-100 to Natural Aquarium, walk a bit further to the hut and you'll be able to snorkel with fishes as well. I didn't snorkel (wife... More

I learned to dive here. What a dream! Amazing visibility and plenty of fish. The water is warm and it's a good place to get out of the wind if Oro is a little chilly in winter.

Arrived on the Isle of Pines from a cruise ship and got on the first tender to the island. We were amongst the first to reach the bay and had half an hour of peace and tranquility before the crowds arrived. The water was crystal clear and while coral was lacking there were a few fish here and there for... More
