Ile des Pins

Ile des Pins or the isle of Pines is situated off the coast of New Calledonia and is most commonly reached by boat, Usually cruise ship.

I remeber before visiting the island people telling me how beautiful it was, going as far to saying that its the most beautiful Ilsand in the world.

Perhaps not the world but its an incrediably beautiful Island none the less.

Its one of those places however, that you visit but the scenes your eyes encounter are to much for for your eyes to fully comprehend that its only after having looked at your photos that you say to yourself, that was absolutely beautiful.

Its one of those islands that u can simply launge about all day on the sand, or deside to go snorkelling or engage in other water sports.
There are also some wonderful hiking opportunities which give panoramic views of the island and the surrounding lagoon.

Although i only spent a few days there, it has forever been indented in my mind. Although having been to some amazing islands in my exisitence this is truly one i would visit over and over again.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:beautiful
  • Cons:expensive
  • In a nutshell:just look at the photos and decide for yourself

    This place can compete with French Polynesia. I should put it on my wish list for paradises-to-visit.

    I echo your sentiments exactly. This island is one of those places you truly can't believe you are in while you're there.......then when you look back at your photos it still didn't seem real! One love!!
