This island jewel located about 80 kilometres south of Noumea is known for its stunning beauty, pristine settings and quiet bays and lagoons. Captain James Cook reached the island in 1774 giving it the much-deserved name Isle of Pines for the abundance of beautiful tall pine trees throughout.
While the Isle of Pines is just 14 kilometres wide and approximately 16 kilometres long, the remote island has seemingly endless beaches set along crystal blue waters. With its contrasting scenery, from the cliff tops above to the plentiful coral reef within the waters, there is a great deal to see and enjoy here. Accommodation choices are available in every price range from camp grounds to budget and even luxury.
One of the loveliest areas of the island is Upi Bay. This beautiful sheltered cove is lined with towering pine trees and white sand beaches and calm transparent waters. Follow the coast to the island’s southern coast where the inviting beaches of Vao and Kuto Bay await. The islands small village is located near Kuto Bay where bicycles and motorized bikes can be rented. Long walks or rides in areas undisturbed open up to visitors offering some of the most beautiful settings in the Pacific.
The island can be reached from Noumea on Air Caledonie with twice daily flights.
Due to the ongoing impact to our industry from COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to no longer continue with our Flight Centre Leisure brand in Hong Kong.
As of Friday 24 April 2020, we will be aligning our Hong Kong leisure customers with the rest of Asia under our larger corporate brand, FCM Travel Solutions.
So while our brand is changing, our office in Hong Kong will remain. This means we can continue to service customers locally for all current and future bookings, under our FCM Leisure Team. Our team is here to make sure that any travel needs you have are met with the same professional and friendly service you are used to from the Flight Centre brand.
We will redirect you through to our new details now.
