Logbook: Ilot Brosse, Ile des Pin, Nouvelle Caledonie



P1070121Powdery white sand, the kind that is difficult to brush off your skin. The signature pine trees of Ile des Pins. Glowing blue lagoon waters. And, the usual crowd of sea snakes!


Only boaters visit uninhabited Ilot Brosse – boaters and tourists brought in small groups by small tourist boats. We had the island to ourselves each night we were there with only our buddies aboard Dream Time sharing the anchorage.


It was a nice place to for beach walks, beach fires, an amazing view from the cockpit and generally relaxing. The underwater scene wasn’t that exciting. We definitely could have spent longer here but, as we only have 3 months, and guests coming (yay!) we limited ourselves to only three nights.
