A TREASURE ISLAND WITH AN EXPLOSIVE PAST

Cruise just off the coast of Madagascar to Pointe des Galets (or simply, Le Port), a gateway to all Réunion has to offer. It’s not hard to miss Réunion on the map. After all, this charming island 500 miles off the coast of Madagascar is just 30 miles wide. But after viewing its towering volcanic peaks, hiking its lush rolling hills, and walking the palm tree-lined streets of Pointe des Galets, it transforms into a destination never to be forgotten.

Take time to stop and smell the flowers at the Conservatoire Botanique National de Mascarin, located 30 minutes to the south in St-Leu. Here, wander through nearly 4000 species of plants that are endemic to the region, all within the conservatory’s 3-hectare garden.

Formed from the activity of two volcanos, Réunion is a hiker’s dream. With varied terrain, make your way through lush jungles, explore cratered lunar landscapes, and scale soaring mountains—often all on the same hike!

Fresh seafood from the Indian Ocean and a mix of cultural flavors make dining an absolute delight in Réunion. You won’t have to travel far to find the Réunion specialty carri, an island take on traditional curries. If you’re feeling adventurous, order a Creole favorite, civet zourite, a memorable (and delicious) octopus curry.
