Learn more about Reunion Tourism
Réunion is an island of the Mascarene archipelago with the status of a French overseas department. It is located in the Indian Ocean, eastern Madagascar, and it is constituted as an outermost region of the European Union.
This small island is full of treasures, biodiversity, and incredible experiences. It’s not as popular as other countries or islands in the regions, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. Reunion has nothing to envy other exotic islands in the Indian Ocean as it already has many tourist spots that can attract any traveler.
Before starting your travel plans to Reunion, remember that you cannot enter this country without having the Reunion Attestation first. The Reunion Attestation is an electronic-stored document that allows you to enter by offering private information like your health status and your travel details. This is important due to the current situation with the coronavirus pandemic, so you shouldn’t overlook it. Plus, you can easily apply for this health declaration by using iVisa.com.
Reunion Island is a land with a tropical climate, and remarkable flora and fauna. To this day, many scientists and volunteers often discover new plant and animal species. They often do these discoveries on land, but they also work in the ocean or the skies. You’re free to visit this beautiful island and see for yourself this incredible wildlife as it is one of the most remarkable things on the island.
Since 2010, Reunion has achieved an incredible goal for any country, and that is to have a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. La Réunion National Park features as one of the natural wonders according to UNESCO, and that’s not for less with all the incredible things you can find in this park. This vast natural area is home to numerous animal and plant species, plus, it has been well-taken care of thanks to the hard work of local, national, and international organizations.
Reunion Island National Park was established in 2007, and it represents 42% of the island’s total surface area. It’s a place with remarkable biodiversity, which is why many organizations safeguard the area a lot. Thanks to this park, knowledge about wildlife and flora have developed tremendously, and at the same time, it has become more accessible to the public. Here you can find amazing animal species like Barau’s petrel and the Black petrel, but that’s not all, you can also get to know many indigenous species, including the Reunion cuckooshrike.
Reunion has an amazing volcanic activity, which is quite notorious in this park as it is home to Salazie, Mafate, and Cilaos craters. The craters and their ramparts, as well as the two incredible volcanoes of Piton de la Fournaise and Piton des Neiges, have been part of UNESCO’S list of World Heritage Sites, and that’s something the country’s proud of.
Aside from the Reunion Island National Park and the ramparts, you should also explore the Natural Marine Reserve. It was created in 2007 and it’s been a huge touristic spot since then. It extends along 40 km of coastline, from Cap La Houssaye in Saint-Paul to la Roche aux Oiseaux in Etang-Salé. As an important fact of this reserve, keep in mind that from its 40 km of extension, 20 are coral reefs. Thanks to these coral reefs, this reserve has more than 3,500 marine species. It is not difficult to explore this reserve and its surrounding areas, but bear in mind that its surface land of 35 km2 is split between the general perimeter with enforced protection zones and those with full protection. 5% of this place is under full protection, and you’ll be able to identify them thanks to the signs along the beaches. Besides, with a proper professional guide, you won’t have issues while exploring the reserve, even if you decide to surf, dive-in, snorkel, etc.
Reunion is very popular for its volcanic activity, and a clear example of that is its two majestic volcanoes: Piton de la Fournaise and Piton des Neiges.
Piton de la Fournaise is the most popular natural spot on the island, and it is often called ‘the sacred furnace’. Since 2014, the Cité du Volcan (a museum dedicated to volcanic knowledge in Reunion) has been deciphering the secrets of this incredible volcano 2,631 meters high. This volcano can be seen from all over the island, even when the clouds are gathered at its peak. Another interesting fact about this volcano is that it erupts every nine months on average, so it is one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
As for the Piton des Neiges, it played a key part in the creation of the island. It’s been on Earth for over three million years and thanks to its activity during those years, we can now enjoy Reunion as a magnificent land. The Piton des Neiges has eroded over time and in the absence of recent volcanic activity, but it’s still the highest peak of the island, with an altitude of 3,069 meters! Despite its name (Neige means ‘snow’ in french), the volcano’s peak is rarely covered in snow because there are no snowfalls in the region.
We could keep talking about the majesty of Reunion Island, but by now, we recommend you consider the spots we mentioned before. They’re probably the top-visited places in the country, so make sure of putting them on your checklist.
Please remember to apply for the Reunion Attestation before entering Reunion.
