New Caledonia Isle of Pines

Isle of Pines


The Isle of Pines (l’Île des Pins), situated in southern New Caledonia, is known as ‘the closest island to paradise.’ The Kuniés, proud inhabitants of the island, dot the crystal-clear waters with their outrigger canoes, while the warm Pacific sun illuminates the area. Close your eyes and take a deep breath – it’s not a dream; you’re truly on the Isle of Pines, New Caledonia!

The Isle of Pines, accessible by boat or plane, remains an authentic and popular tourist destination in New Caledonia. N’ga Peak, with its stunning views, sits at the island’s highest point. However, the Isle of Pines’ bays are its main attraction, with large beaches of pure white sand like Kuto Bay and crystal-clear turquoise waters filled with fascinating marine life. Kanumera Bay, Oro Bay, and Upi Bay are excellent places to begin your exploration of the island’s stunning white sands and clear waters.
