Welcome to
Reunion Island
Welcome to the exotic island of Reunion, a little piece
of France and an island of major contrasts set in the
azure waters of the Indian Ocean. This unique island,
one of the most intriguing islands in the world, is
located near Mauritius and features an active volcano
on its south east coast, a variety of beaches along
the west coast, a fascinating culture and amazing
mountains with the highest peak reaching 3069 metres.


Reunion Island offers a very diverse holiday
experience and has something to suit all travellers.
Guests can relax on the beach, indulge in the amazing
culture and cuisine of the French and Creole locals,
hire a car and explore the inland mountains or enjoy
                                                                                                                     Spectacular scenery of Salazie
shopping and sightseeing opportunities.


For adventure and adrenaline junkies, the activities
are endless. Try hiking through the unique “cirques”,
rock climbing up the magnificent mountains,
canyoning on one of the island’s many waterfalls,
scuba dive or surf the marine rich waters, fly a
microlight, paraglide, sky dive or take a trek to
the crater of the island’s active volcano. To truly
experience the awesome “cirques” of Reunion, a
helicopter flight is a must do activity.

holiday fun for all guests. Temperatures

significant variation from one end of the
island to the other.

The average coastal temperatures ranges
