The bay filled up with tourists... 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

Stunning beaches, views, snorkelling or simply relaxing. Water clear as glass and much to see in the way of fish and coral.

This is the best spot on the island to swim and snorkel. The water is not too deep, and there are a lot of fish around the left side of the 'rock', the main attraction of the bay. On cruise ship days this area is PACKED with tourists, so best to go on another day if you want the place... More

We were fortunate to visit here in June in the low season and when no cruise boats were visiting, so we were literally the only people in the bay. No crowds, no-one trying to make a quick buck. The water was beautiful and warm enough for swimming despite it being the cool season. Beautiful sunset to cap it off. Fantastic!

This beach was relaxing and snorkeling around for young children and adults were great. I loved it. Its unspoilt and that is great. Its natural beauty of the island is great. So glad the resorts have not distroyed it. Thats what I love. Noumea is over commericalised. Isle of Pines, Mare and Lifou still has all the natural beauty of... More

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
