Spectacular Plage de Kuto (Kuto Beach) is an idyllic tropical beach that overlooks the glistening Kuto Bay. It’s where the transparent water of the Pacific Ocean laps at the shores of a horseshoe-shaped sweep of white sand backed by thick forests. Go snorkelling, enjoy picturesque walks and take boat trips to other scenic parts of the Isle of Pines.
The beach’s safe and shallow water entices visitors to take a refreshing swim. Gaze down through the transparent sea to spot a multi-coloured coral reef and an abundance of brightly coloured fish. Rent snorkelling equipment to get a closer look at the fascinating ocean life. Another good location for snorkelling is Plage de Kaa Nuë Méra (Kanumera Beach). To get there, cross the small isthmus that separates the two beaches.
Sit on the soft sand and admire the stunning natural scenery, which includes forests of tall pines and palm and gum trees. Arrange a trip on a traditional pirogue outrigger canoe to other areas of the island, such as Baie d’Upi (Upi Bay) and Nokanhui Atoll.
Walk to the northern end of the beach, where a coastal pathway skirts around a forest-clad headland. Follow the route for about 15 minutes to reach the unspoiled Plage de Kutema (Kutema Beach). At the opposite end of the beach is a small market. Browse for handmade bags, hats, sarongs and sandalwood oil.

Many people visit the beach on daytrips or as part of a cruise. There are a handful of hotels and guesthouses for those who wish to stay overnight.
