Island Gems Cruise: 11-nights in May 2012

P&O Cruises P&O - Pacific Dawn australia cruise sale
Bask in the Pacific Sun on this 11 night cruise from Brisbane. Arrive in Noumea 2 days later ready for some beautiful beaches and French Pacific culture. Explore the city by Le Petit Train, and visit the traditional Boulangerie (Bakery Shops), caf├ęs (where you can taste New Caledonia’s own coffee) and fabulous restaurants where you can sample fine New Caledonian foods cooked in a French style with imported French wines. 
The waters off the Isle of Pines must really 'wash whitest' because the sands of the Isle's Kato Bay will impress any visitor with its white, white, talcum-like beach.  The most difficult aspect of your visit to the Isle of Pines will be saying goodbye to its sunny skies, friendly faces, warm waters and of course those beautiful beaches. 
 Tiny Mystery Island is picture perfect, with sandy pathways that lead to white beaches edged with coconut trees and crystal clear lagoons offering great snorkelling. The locals from a nearby island will come to sell their few shells and goods and your day may be spent relaxing on the sand while the local band plays songs of welcome. 
The serene island of Wala has pristine beaches, forests and is home to 200-300 friendly smiley locals.  The soft coral white beach fringed with palms shelves down to bright turquoise waters and the inky blue of the deep channel dividing the island from the mainland. Dugouts ply the foreshore and the snorkelling is excellent. On the beach there is a bar serving cool Tusker Vanuatu beer and soft drinks.
Champagne Bay will amaze with the breathtaking views of the most spectacular stretch of beach fringed with palm trees. If you're feeling energetic, then you might like to take part in a game of beach volleyball, or just relax on the sand and enjoy the views. 
Vila- The harbour is quite active with fishing boats, yachts and speedboats passing between the various nearby islands. The dock bustles with dancers and music and there are lots of friendly locals selling handicrafts. The covered market place is a colourful and interesting place to visit selling handicrafts, fruits and colourful tropical flowers.
