Located east of Madagascar and lapped by the temperate waters of the Indian Ocean, the small island of Reunion is known for its exceptional natural beauty and wide range of dramatic landscapes. From the lava fields to the palm-fringed beaches with white and black sand, jagged peaks, rainforests, and tumbling waterfalls, there is certainly no shortage of attractions and activities here. The Island is also well-known for the formidable Piton de la Fournaise – one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Foodies and culture lovers will enjoy visiting the vibrant towns that are built on a mix of French, Creole, Indian and Chinese cultures.
