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

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!
