We visited Ile de Pins on a Holland America World Cruise, and this gorgeous little island was one of the best highlights of our 79 day voyage. Kanumera Bay is a short walk from the tender pier, and is a postcard picture for an idylic beach and snorkel get away. The water was warm, crystal clear, no current, and full... More

Our intention was to spend the day snorkelling at Kanumera Bay, which is a very short walk from the... More

Was such an amazing place to visit with great views and amazing beaches. The snorkelling was so much fun with a lot of sea life. A great place to spend the day relaxing.

Part of the beautiful bays visited during our tour of Ile of Pines. Stunning beach with interesting photography opportunities. Well worth a look see.

The last stop on our cruise and we visited the Natural Aquarium in the morning and found some more time to explore in the afternoon. Swimming around the big rock was amazing and almost as good as the Natural Aquarium with some amazing fish to be found close to the rock face. A wonderful experience and our new favourite place...

This was the last stop on a Celebrity Solstice cruise and was stunningly beautiful. As the other reviews have stated the beach is amazing, the water has multiple shades of blue and the snorkeling is great. We have been to beaches all over the world and this one ranks near the top.

We snorkel led around near the restaurant at the end of the bay and it was... More

We had the day to spend here from a cruise ship. We didn't know what to do so walked along the road looking for a taxi. That didn't work so went back to get on one of the buses that do the 2 hour tour around the island. $25 and worth it. We stopped at the caves, this was $3... More
