Reunion Island | The Ultimate start to a new year

Reunion Island sits waiting within the turquoise currents of the Indian Ocean and promises unique experiences to all those who venture to its shores. Reunion Island is ideally located alongside Africa and is a short 4-hour flight from Johannesburg with Air Austral, and South Africans do not need a visa to visit this French island. 

2018 will see an influx of intrepid travellers to the island to experience some of its unique features. The island boasts an array of activities along with cultural festivities that will keep visitors enthralled throughout their stay.

Reunion Island has some of the most diverse ecosystems located within one destination. The terrain encountered on the island varies from fast volcanic plains which allow hikers to see the sunset across the horizon and distant mountain to the Piton de la Fournaise, a basaltic volcano that has remained active and reachable throughout the centuries. From the open plains, travellers can look forward to encounter lush forested regions that house villages occupied by the Reunionese.

The Reunionese are some of the kindest people you will meet on your travels and they are eager to share their knowledge of their island with curious travellers. If you are travelling within forested parts of the island then be sure to keep an eye out for locals to ask where you may find some of the glistening waterfalls that cascade down the mountainsides found on the island as these waterfalls are little jewels you don’t want to miss out on.
It is the people and the unique cultures present on Reunion Island that brings life to this ultimate destination. What makes Reunion Island so unique is the various facets of religions, cultures, and traditions present on the island. Travellers are able to indulge their senses in the cuisine, music and overall experience of a night out on the streets of Reunion Island. From cafes that play the latest Maloya beats, reminiscent of African drums and smooth jazz to the Creole dancers, that will get your hips shaking before you embark on a tasty adventure with some local delicacies available at the night markets. Visitors to the island can experience both sides of the Indian Oceans hotspot during their stay…
From night markets and street festivals to the open oceanic breeze and fresh salty air, travellers have the option of pushing their boundaries with some adrenaline packed activities! Take to the skies with a unique paragliding experience above the crashing waves, scuba dive your way through the protected reef to encounter an array of fish species or keep it dirty with the ultimate mountain biking experience before getting wet while canyoning along the rugged waterways. Find your next adventure and book your next thrill to start 2018 off with a bang.
