Isle of Pines on South Pacific is a 37.000 acres island at a 100 kilometers distance of Noumea the capital of New-Caledonia. This island which offers so gorgeous landscapes lies on the south caledonian lagoon which is listed at UNESCO World Heritage. The prehistory and history of the isle are linked to the history of the Melanesian and Polynesian navigators and sailors who traveled through the Pacific during thousand of years with their wooden pirogues. Archaeologists have discovered during last centuries traces of human occupation which date of at least 3500 years concerning Isle of Pines. Lapita potteries have been discovered on Isle of Pines with same manufacturing and decoration techniques than the ones used for potteries discovered on the north west coast of Caledonia in Kone and Koumac but also on Bismark islands, Salomon, Vanuatu, Fidji, Samoas, Tonga and Wallis. Migrations at this time were done with sailing pirogues that have allowed people to cross the South Pacific and travel between all the islands. The pirogue on the pictures is made of different kind of woods got from different trees species. This pirogue sails fast, is easy to steer and can sail against wind with ten people on board.
