Isle of Pines: The Jewel of the Pacific
How can a 19th century penal colony site be a slice of paradise? This will probably be the question that will pop into a visitor’s mind upon learning the history of Isle of Pines. And once you set foot on this pristine Pacific island, you will definitely think that this is valid question.
Isle of Pines is just less than a 30-minute flight from the main island of Noumea, New Caledonia. It is often considered as one of the most beautiful islands in the Pacific. If you don’t believe the travel enthusiasts, then you should at least believe Captain Cook. Taken by its incredible beauty, the great explorer famously called the island the “Jewel of the Pacific.” Captain Cook was also responsible for the English name of the island. However, for the locals, Isle of Pines will forever be their enchanting “Kunyie.”
