The active volcano of Le Piton de la Fournaise is a shield volcano and represents no danger for the population. It often offers an astonishing show as there is an eruption every 3 to 6 months. The star of the island is a must-see !

SALAZIE, CILAOS & MAFATE

One of the reasons why 42% of the island is a Unesco World Heritage site is the three Cirques of Salazie, Cilaos & Mafate. Each one of them is unique and offers a paradise for nature lovers. Salazie and Cilaos are accessible by car. For Mafate, a short hike will lead you to it. Each Cirque has small mountain villages which are surrounded by thousand meters remparts...

THE LAGOON

What would be an island without its white sand beaches and lagoon ? Reunion island offers 25 km of protected coral reef barriers on the west and south-west coasts of the island. Not only would you be able to enjoy some snorkeling, but you will also have the opportunity to try some transparent kayaking, paddling, kitesurfing and much more !
