I have just been on a P&O cruise and we went to Isle Of Pines, I must say that I was very disappointed about the place. 1. If you are going to snorkel specially around the sacred rock it's a waste of time as the water is churned up and the visibility is poor. 2. The pricing for food specially... More

Just snorkel here, the view is even better underwater. Try the local bbq cray fish, its delicious. Beers at the resort are expensive as it is anywhere in New Cal, but a must on the beach after a big day in the ocean. We took the wo woba (a ball that bounces on water) and the flippers and had a...

Absolutely beautiful to sit under the trees and look a the bay but I thought the snorkelling was terrible. So much of the coral has been damaged by the tourists and there's not much there thriving. The water is incredibly calm and very shallow making it a fabulous swimming beach for young families.

Arrived by tender from cruise ship Rhapsody Of The Sea to this beautiful piece of paradise in early December 2013. We enjoyed watching off our balcony the ship slowly making it's way to Isle Of Pines, the waters were so blue and very calm. Once the ship anchored we boarded a tender and made our way to the small and... More

I enjoyed great snorkelling around Sacred Rock. Just a 5-10 minute walk from the pier, you'll see the beach on the left and the rock on the right. Whilst visiting Isle de Pins, I did the Natural Aquarium in the morning (separate review) and snorkelled around the Sacred Rock in the afternoon. The Natural Aquarium was better, but if you... More

This is a really beautiful part of the world. We visited as part of a cruise, but were fortunate enough to be one of the first off the ship and see this bay before the crowds arrived. The water is crystal clear and the fish are varied and colourful. Bring a mask and snorkel with you, and some reef shoes... More

If you book one of the numerous cruises out of Sydney or Brisbane to the Pacific Islands, chances are that the itinerary will include a day at the Ile Des Pins (Isle of Pines). And once you step ashore and wander around, you will realise that one day just insn't enough! I have traveled to most islands in the Pacific,... More

Make sure when your cruise ship anchors in Oro Bay that you walk across to the other side of this section of the island. It doesn't take long, just turn left at the jetty. Follow the road and you will find this little piece of paradise. Swim, snorkel or walk along the soft white sand to the resort. The locals... More

I visited Isle of Pines with P&O for the first time in June this year and absolutely loved it. From the boutique stalls to the sightseeing and history, there was plenty to do in the eight hours we spent ashore. The the convict ruins, white sand and turquoise sea make every photo a postcard. After walking around the stalls, checking... More
