Time will stop when you first lay eyes on the Isle of Pines' glittering blue water and white, powdery beaches. Nicknamed "The Jewel of the Pacific," this small isle greets you with the spiny trees that line its shores — these pines give the island its name. Formed from nutritious volcanic rock, the isle is surrounded by the New Calendonia Barrier Reef. Cruise to Isle of Pines and head to secluded Upi Bay, where you can go snorkeling and see the reef up-close, as well as clownfish, sea turtles and other exotic sea life. Or take the one-hour hike through lush rainforest to the top of N'Ga Peak. From the summit, you can spot the natural pool at Oro Bay — head there afterward to relax and splash around in the clear waters surrounded by pines.
