Isle Of Pines, New Caledonia Cruise Port

The Isle of Pines is one of the islands located in the archipelago of New Caledonia, which is a French overseas collectivity. The island is surrounded by the New Caledonia Barrier Reef in the Pacific Ocean and is part of the commune of L'Ile-des-Pins in New Caledonia's South Province. The Isle of Pines was given a French nick-name that literally translates to “the closest island to paradise”. The island lies to the Southeast of Grand Terre, which is the main island of New Caledonia, and approximately 100 km southeast of the mainland capital of Noumea. Many tourists visit the region on an annual basis. Listed below are some of the recommended experiences and activities that visitors can enjoy after cruising to the Isle of Pines, New Caledonia:
 
  • The island is known for the many beautiful bays it has. Visitors should consider visiting Oro, which is located to the North of Upi bay because it is home to a natural pool that is bordered by coral cliffs that protect it from the open sea making it ideal for swimming.
     
  • Hikers and adventures will enjoy the island's diversity by climbing the island's only peak, Peak Nga. The peak reaches an altitude of 262 m and once at the top visitors can enjoy spectacular views of the entire island and other islets in the region.
     
  • Another major tourist attraction on the island is Upi Bay. Once here, visitors can tour the Vao village whose residents craft outrigger canoes that are later used by visitors to the island for touring the offshore lagoons in the area.
     
  • The region has been blessed with coral reefs and a rich diversity of marine wildlife. A visit to the Kunie Scuba Center is ideal especially for fans of scuba diving where professional guides take visitors on an exquisite underwater tour.
