Accommodation in Ile des Pines

Venture over to the Ile des Pines, discovered by Captain Cook in 1774, and lying 70km (45 miles) off Grande Terre. This exceedingly beautiful island has many white sand beaches, turquoise lagoons, lush rainforests, pines, orchids and ferns not to mention archaeological remains.

The Isle of Pines itself is nicknamed l’île la plus proche du paradis (“the closest island to Paradise”). L’Île-des-Pins can be reached by boat or plane from Nouméa, the capital of New Caledonia. It is renowned for the intense blue colors of its waters and for the ancient pine tree groves spread throughout the Isle of Pines and the neighboring islands.

In 2005 L’Île-des-Pins gained attention when season 5 of French reality show Les Aventuriers de Koh-Lanta (“The Adventurers of Koh Lanta”), the French version of Survivor, was set on several small islands off the Isle of Pines.

There are plenty of accommodation options on Ile des Pines.
