to as an “intense” island, Reunion can be as different as night and day, depending
on where you travel within the island. From the flat coastal areas where watersports
are king to the mountainous interior where adrenaline sports offer nail-biting
excitement, Reunion Island greets travellers with the most amazing holiday experiences.
The Interior Reunion’s rugged interior is formed by Salazies Mountain –
an extinct volcano – in the west and the Grand Brule Mountain in the east, where
visitors will find the island’s still-active volcano, the Piton de la Fournaise.
The interior’s highest point is Le Piton des
Nieges, standing a majestic 3,069 meters tall. The island’s three cirques, however,
dominate the topography of the interior portion of Reunion. Often described as
“natural amphitheatres” or “calderas”, a cirque – literally a volcano that
collapsed upon itself - offers not only amazing photo opportunities but fun and
adventure as well. But the interior of Reunion is much more than just lava-covered
mountains and ancient crumbling craters. On this volcanic island, guests will
find amazing lush, green forests like the Bebour-Belouve, where you’ll view birds
that you’d be hard-pressed to see anywhere else in the world.
Waterfalls are abundant and spectacular as well, literally trickling in
the dry months but offering crushing flows during the rainy season, when monsoons
are a natural occurrence. You might even stumble upon a dairy farm or two while
exploring Reunion’s varied interior. Coastline Due to its more manageable
and people-friendly terrain, the coastal lowlands of Reunion Island are where
cities and villages have sprung up throughout the centuries, since the time the
French settled on the island in 1642. The west coast towns offer warm, relaxing
bea ches as well as plenty of opportunity for enticing watersports. The lively
town of St-Gilles-les-Bains attracts scuba divers with its nearby coral reefs
and St Leu is the perfect location for avid surfers. Pretty St Paul boasts a fun
outdoor street market and lots of traditional Creole houses for guests to admire.
The northernmost coastal capital city of St
Denis is really a mecca for tourists, but often overlooked in favor of the
beaches or mountains. You’ll find interesting island architecture on a tour of
this friendly city as well as art galleries, beautiful gardens, and the island’s
best variety of restaurants, ranging from formal sit-down establishments to island
take-out joints, where you can grab some quick Creole finger foods to enjoy during
your downtown stroll. East coast towns offer fields of sugar cane and vanilla,
attractive architecture, luxurious vegetation, and lots of waterfalls. The sea,
however, is rugged on this coast and not appropriate for swimming or other watersports.
