The 10 good reasons to go Réunion
Between parasailing, jet-skiing and exploring the lavatubes, everything is possible.
It's going up!
Reunion Island is best enjoyed on foot. It is by crawling that we go back in time.
A plural identity
Here live Cafres, Malbars, Tamils, Zarabes, Yabs, Zoreils, Sinois, Mauritians, Mahorais and Malagasy.
Places of worship
Hindu temples, Christian churches and mosques dot the island.
The tropical climate
29 °C in the air, as well as in the water, and exuberant vegetation on all sides.
From one fauna to another
Between sea and land, in search of whales, sleepy, straw in tails and tangs.
From neoclassical Creole huts to large estates and Sino-style shops. Admire!
Join a kabar and dance the sega or maloya.
Curries and rougails
The meals cheerfully mix bichique curry, sausage rougail, gratin chouchous, jujube pie. Yummy!
The eruptions of the volcano
As unpredictable as it is active, the Piton de la Fournaise offers beautiful flows several times a year.
