Reunion Island is a tropical land of blue lagoons, crystal seas and stunning shorelines, perfect for an escape from the everyday.
This French paradise island offers unique adventures such as canyoning and kayaking to help make this the trip-of-a-lifetime, and boasts a diverse landscape and a variety of cultures to explore too. A visit here is like a world tour combined into just one short visit to a single destination and no less than 40 percent of the island is classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its volcanic peaks, craters and ramparts which are truly the jewels in the crown of Reunion Island. Explore everything from Asian cuisine to Creole markets, and travel from volcanic lunar style deserts to tropical forests in the cirques, at the heart of the island or tranquil lagoons at L'Ermitage.
