Island Legacy

Join your local guide to explore the most notable sites on land and discover the rich heritage of Isle of Pines and its people. As we tour around the island, your guide will share a legend of Queen Hortense, the inspiration for the 'Kunie' people. You will be taken through an elaborate storyline as we visit Vao Village, Notre Dame de L’Assomption Church, St Joseph’s (Canoe) bay and St Maurice Bay, where a Christian monument stands side by side with mystical Kanak totems. For the final magic of the story, discover hidden in the forest the sacred Oumagne grotto, a giant limestone cave adorned with gigantic stalactites and stalagmites which served as a refuge to the young queen Hortense during a difficult time of inter-tribal conflicts.
