A Glimpse of our Island (unguided)


Visit some of the Isle of Pines’ most important and picturesque historical sites on this unguided bus tour, including prison ruins that once imprisoned French convicts. See the spectacular white-sand Kuto beach and stop briefly at Brush Island lookout to view this peculiar shaped island, decorated with tall pine trees. At Vao Village, drive by the town hall, post office, small clinic and stop to visit the Notre Dame de l’Assomption, Catholic Church (1861). The village was established at the same time as the Church, so that all tribes and clans could receive the new teachings of the mission. At St. Maurice Bay, see traditional Kanak wood carvings placed around a religious memorial celebrating the arrival of the first Marist brothers to the island in 1848.
