Reunion

Arab, Portuguese, British and Dutch sailors had all been aware of Reunion for some time, stopping merely to replenish water and food stores, but several Frenchmen started to settle there accompanied by their servants from Madagascar, including some women. 

in 1946, when the island became an Overseas Department of France, Reunion began to benefit from considerable public investment. This continued progressively and explains the island’s modern and developed infrastructure today. Reunion is also a region of the European Union in itself, even though Brussels is 10 000 km away...

 

Reunion island proposes an infinite variety of landscapes on 2500km² : white sand beaches, sun, sea and lagoon, wonderful mountains, white water activities, waterfalls, forests, volcano…

ORIENTATION

Reunion island proposes an infinite variety of landscapes on 2500km² : white sand beaches, sun, sea and lagoon, wonderful mountains, white water activities, waterfalls, forests, volcano…

 

With the combined forces of the ocean, the air and the movements of the earth’s crust, an island of astonishing scenery has risen from the sea. We are left with the three enormous ‘cirques’ (natural amphitheatres) of Cilaos, Salazie and Mafate, the deep valleys hewn into the volcanic slopes by the island’s main rivers, and the upper plains dotted with peaks….

 

Due to its relatively reduced surface area (2500km²), these abrupt mountains give Reunion a truly unique geographical identity. The flight across the island, either by helicopter or by microlite, is simply breath-taking.

 

The island’s highest point is the Piton des Neiges at 3 070 m. Its last volcanic eruptions were 16000 years ago. You can reach it either from Cilaos, Salazie or from La Plaine des Cafres, and people generally climb it in two stages, staying one night at the Piton des Neiges ‘gîte’ (hostel) before watching the sun rise over Reunion from the summit the next morning.


To feel Reunion Island, let it surprise you, enjoy the beauty of its landscapes and share unforgettable moments…Reunion invites you to be amazed by the discovery of its treasures!

WHEN TO GO

Reunion benefits from a tropical climate softened by the breezes of the Indian Ocean. The sun shines down all year round, especially in the north, west and south of the island. The wide variety of microclimates in Reunion means that one can be soaking up the sunshine by the sea in the morning and be up taking in the cool mountain air in the afternoon, and all this without having to travel far to do so.

Compared to the northern hemisphere, the seasons are the other way round in the south. However, any notions of winter and summer are relative in the tropics. The year is divided up into two long periods: the warm and humid season, from November to April, and the fresher and drier season which runs from May to October.

Water temperature varies between 20 and 25° during the year, but the shallow waters of the lagoon are even warmer.
