Shoal of red and green fish

Home to one of the world’s most active volcanoes, snow-capped Piton de Fournaise, Réunion is a little-known gem. This rocky,French-governed island off the coast of East Africa is easily explored by. The road into the mountains provides breath taking scenery. Bike tours on rough back roads are an option for the brave and the extremely fit. Beyond the reach of cars, the untamed village Cirque de Mafate shows the island’s wildest side Just 200km West of Mauritius, Réunion is one of the very few Island destinations that allows you to experience total relaxation and extraordinary adventure in a single journey.

It is possible to dive all year round in the tropics. Winter, from May to September, is the peak season for swell coming from the South and from June to September the whales come to Reunion Island. The water is at its coolest in winter (23°C to 26°C) but the unique song of the cetaceans is sure to warm up your excursions! In summer, Jan and Feb and occasionally into middle march can be very windy. The water temperature can reach up to 30°C in December and diving in a shorty in summer is the best option. This is the period when the reef is richest in life with predators and clouds of juvenile fish! If you love tranquillity, the months of November and December, and especially May to June, will be most appropriate.
