    Ile des pins

    January 16 in New Caledonia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    On a passé 5 jours et 4 nuits sur l’île des pins où on a eu le temps d’à peu près tout faire.
    On a loué un scooter sur une journée pour découvrir l’île (plages, grottes, lagons...) on a fait une sortie en pirogue et piscine naturelle.
    On a fait une sortie bateau pour découvrir les différentes baies, fait pas mal de snorkelling et fini par manger une langouste sur un îlot. On a visité les baies autour du camping et on est allé voir le couché du soleil en haut du mont N’ga, le plus haut de l’île, et puis on s’est fait plein de potes au camping.Read more

    il des pins <3

    November 6, 2016 in New Caledonia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Am Morge am 5i simmer los richtig Hafe und hend nachere 3- stündige schiffsfahrt d Insle vo de Pinie erreicht.
    Fasch echli kitschig gsehts uus a dene wunderschöne, flache, fiine Sandstränd! Und s Schnorchle isch natürli au spannend gsii :) (au wenn die Koralle da au chli mitgnoh sind...)
    Zum abschluss vo demm schöne Tag simmer denn na so schön verrägnet worde 😅 aber das isch ja halb so schlimm bi dene Temperature ☀ 🏝 😊


    We started our day at 5am, went to the Ferry who took us to Il des pins. After our 3hour boatride, we arrived at this wonderful place.
    All these beautiful flat and bright beaches with some palms 😍 snorkelling was great as well (even if the corals here are a bit damaged as well)
    It's truly a paradise!
    To finish the day, we got a natural rain-shower before boarding the ferry 😅

    One of the small islands around Grande Terre.
    We toke a boat called Betico,quiet expensive but cheaper than the plane.Perfect beginning:we've seen a toutrle from the boat!!
    We slept in a traditional house: the gite (indigenous house but really modern for the satisfaction of the guest).
    The water and the sand are unbelievable! Coconut trees and pines in the same, wild, place!!Read more

    Oure Tera Lodge, Isle of Pines

    May 2, 2018 in New Caledonia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    So we ditched the dodgy digs, and relocated here ... Chalk n cheese. Have an amazing bungalow that opens on to the beach. We spent the morning snorkeling the reef just outside our door. Divine coral, tropical fish aplenty. Cute wrasse, parrot fish, angels, gourami, ribbon fish, and dozens of others I don't know the names of. Then we lazed and read our books... Wonderful to do that, neither of us have time any more to read, so it was divine!

    The tide went far out, exposing a rock shelf which we walked after putting on our reef shoes, as the rocks were sharp. Here we saw rock pools, left by the receding tide, full of life. They were perfect marine tanks, coral, fish, crustaceans, sea slugs. Very beautiful. There were very unusual crustaceans that looked like fossil trilobites, but living, clamped to the rocks. We walked maybe 750 meters along the rocks shelf (pics to follow) before we decided we'd better turn back before the tide turned, and we were stranded.

    We then jumped into the cold, but refreshing piscine (swimming pool).

    Now, it is time for a Number One - the local brew... Very nice.
