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.

This was the best snorkeling we did during our 10 night cruise around the islands, lots of colorful fish and s great spot for kids as its shallow they don't have to swim far or contend with currents to see some magnificent marine life! 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

We visited here whilst on a cruise in September 2014. This was a hilight of our trip. The Islands are beautiful and the water is an amazing colour. Lovely friendly people too.

We visited off a cruise ship and this stop was easily our highlight. Beautiful white sandy beaches, lovely friendly locals and awesome snorkeling too. Will definitely visit again.

The snorkelling in the bay is full of vibrant colours of coral and parrot fish. The islanders are used to ships full of tourists coming and they know how to haggle. There is a gallery up on the hill behind the colonial police station building which has great art for sale. This is a must visit on any ships itinerary.... More

Was nice for a short snorkel. Was way too cold to stay in the water for longer than half an hour. Beautiful scenery but the snorkelling was better on lifou Island. Food was expensive amid the locals were lovely!
