The Coast

From wave-battered basalt cliffs to long stretches of white sand; from thriving coral reefs to striking black sand beaches... There is something for everyone along Réunion Islands dramatic coastline. For those who wish to discover the world beneath the Indian Ocean, sheltered bays teaming with a fantastic variety of fish, molluscs and colourful corals are waiting to be explored. Or you can plunge deeper underwater with our professional divers to unlock a different underwater world where dolphins, rays and turtles reside. Stunning panoramas and striking contrasts await you on 'wild' clifftop walks along the frontline of the constant battle of the elements. If you are passionate about flora and fauna, you must not miss the black sand beaches of Cap Houssaye or the surrounding trees where a variety of seabirds visit and where chameleons are regularly spotted.
