This place was our favourite spot on the whole Island. The whitest sand and the bluest water, all with a sacred rock set in the middle. You can go and explore a little around the front of the rock from land (but don't climb is...More

This bay shares a narrow peninsula with Kuto Bay which seperates the two bays. Kuto Bay is where the cruise ships drop you. Kanumera Bay has good snorkelling and swimming spots but do not climb onto the sacred vegetation covered rock (La Roche). It is...More

Not far from the jetty and shade is available along the shore. As a stopover for Cruises it is obviously well patronized. The water is warm and the snorkeling worth the effort. The rock is a sacred site and should not be touched.Worth a visit.

Don't get me wrong, it is beautiful but it really felt like a big swimming pool here. People just moved from the ship's pool to the water here. It's hard to get a picture of scenery without anyone in the background. There are locals setting...More

Perfect water and nice sand (but less beach than adjacent Kuto). Very calm water - perfect for little snorkelers. Very close to dock and there are adjacent "facilities" (okay a bit of a walk from....). Feels like you are truly in paradise.

We arrived at Kanumera Bay via a 2 hour Isle tour. The area is very nice and quiet pleasing, but it became very overcrowded...with swimmers crowding around the base of the island. The stalls are a nice touch, several had indigenous wears for sale, but...More

Fantastic place, friendly welcoming party and lots of stalls to look at. Beach was beautiful and the water was crystal clear. Can’t wait to head back in April this year.

Kanumera Bay is just on the other side of the main road as you get on the island. This bay is more ideal for snorkelling while Kuto Bay is more ideal for swimming. The water is super calm on the day we visit, which made...More

We visited Isle Des Pins as the first stop of our cruise and the island is beautiful. We started our day on Kuto Bay beach and then headed to Kanumera (a short walk along a path, maybe 2 minutes from Kuto). The scenery was stunning...More
