Have you heard about Spectacular Plage de Kuto (Kuto Beach)?
Kuto Beach is an idyllic tropical beach that overlooks the glistening Kuto Bay. It’s located on the west coast of the Isle of Pines. As information, the Isle of Pines is a magnificent bay with powdery white sand, clear water, a kaleidoscope of ocean life, and scenic walks.
Here, you can found the transparent water of the Pacific Ocean that laps at the shores of a horseshoe-shaped sweep of white sand backed by thick forests. The beach’s safe and shallow water entices visitors to take a refreshing swim.
You can go snorkeling, enjoy picturesque walks and take boat trips to other scenic parts of the Isle of Pines.
You can rent snorkeling equipment to get a closer look at the fascinating ocean life. Another good location for snorkeling is Plage de Kaa Nuë Méra (Kanumera Beach).
Or, you can try to gaze down through the transparent sea to spot a multi-colored coral reef and an abundance of brightly colored fish. To get there, cross the small isthmus that separates the two beaches.
Another activity that you do is sit on the soft sand and admire the stunning natural scenery. 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.
