In search of better waters (for snorkeling and swimming) and of better weat.her (It started to rain) we decided to go to Iles Des Pines that is 40NM SE of the mainland.
The wind was SSE and we had to motorsail all the way to be able to get there before dark. We anchored outside a beautiful beach in time for sundowners.
We woke up the next morning with sun and beautiful weather again. We spent all day in and out of the water. The bay was full of big turtles feeding on the bottom.
Later we walked the beaches wich had the finest sand possible. We stopped at a beach restaurant for a drink
This place is very popular with cruise ships. There was one anchored when we arrived on Saturday but it left in the evening for wich we were happy.
A nice day on a pacific island.
