ÎLE DES PINS
The Isle of Pines (in French Île des Pins; Kanak name: Kunyié) is an island located in the Pacific Ocean, in the archipelago of New Caledonia, an overseas collectivity of France. The island is part of the commune (municipality) of L'Île-des-Pins, in the South Province of New Caledonia. The inhabitants of the island are mainly native Melanesian Kanaks and the population is 2,000 (estimated 2006). In 1989 the population was 1,465.
The Isle of Pines is nicknamed l'île la plus proche du paradis ("the closest island to Paradise"). It has snorkeling and scuba diving in and around its lagoon. Species of tropical fish and corals can be seen in the transparent water.
The island measures 15 km by 13 km. It lies southeast of Grande Terre, New Caledonia's main island and is 100 kilometres southeast of the capital Nouméa. The Isle of Pines is surrounded by the New Caledonia Barrier Reef. The island is rich with animal life and is home to unusual creatures such as the Crested Gecko Rhacodactylus ciliatus and the world's largest gecko Rhacodactylus leachianus.
