Reunion Island Holidays

A holiday in Reunion Island is an invitation to discover a paradise where rough, volcanic terrain meets panoramic views and hidden waterfalls. Eight hundred kilometres east of Madagascar, the French overseas department of Reunion Island is a destination - par excellence!

The far-flung Island, with its intriguing mix of African, French, Indian and Chinese cultures, rises to over 3,000m and its rugged interior boasts a network of walking trails which would not look out of place in Nepal. Three vast eroded cirques, Salazie, Mafate and Cilaos, dominate the centre of Reunion Island and provide the backdrop for this incredible holiday destination. Whether it's marvelling at the sun-kissed shores or trekking through the heart of the island's natural wonders, a holiday in Reunion Island promises an unforgettable fusion of adventure, relaxation and cultural immersion.
