We picked a bus island tour of 2 hours at Kanumera Bay, A$25 each and very good value. Apart from Kanumera Bay we visited several other places including missionaries memorial, Oro Bay, the impressive old Catholic Church, and the former convict prison. Over 2 hours we learnt a lot about the Isle of Pines.

Beautiful bay, we used to feed the fish on the edge of the islet a few years back, now the coral has been destroyed by too many visitors - The only band of coral left to snorkel safely is located right in front of Oure Tera lodge , at the end of the bay where you can spot the fare... More

Apologies for the late review. My wife and I visited the Isle of Pines as part of our P&O cruise in January. I was much looking forward to the Isle of Pines as I visited there 30 years ago and remember the beauty of the place. I was not disappointed. We arrived at the beach and immediately ventured into the... More

Such a lovely place, easy waking distance when getting off any of the major cruise liners that visit the island. Great snorkelling all the way around.

This beach is almost a semi-circle in shape so while one end might be windy the other might be protected. The snorkelling was quite good but not as good as Piscine Naturelle. The water was quite cold, but it was winter.

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

We just came back from a Carnival Cruise to New Caledonia. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage kids - 14 and 15. We stopped at Maré first (see separate review), then the next day at Île des Pins. 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...
