Located off the east coast of Africa lies the French-governed Island of Reunion. Providing breath-taking scenery, Reunion's landscape is full of stark volcanic cliffs and rolling mountains. The island's position in the middle of the Indian Ocean means Reunion has a tropical feel. Those visiting Reunion usually come for the variety of attractions and activities. The island offers incredible canyoning excursions mixed with the sights of Reunion's natural amphitheatres. Travellers can go on a hiking trail to uncover Reunion's mountain villages. If you're considering exploring this beautiful island to its fullest, then hiring a car in Reunion is the best way to discover the incredible depths of this destination.
Reunion's rugged exterior is formed by the Salazies Mountain, but it's the active volcano of Piton de la Fournaise that offers the most incredible hiking trails. Head up the east of the volcanic ranges and you'll notice lush forests like Bebour-belouve - here you will witness some of the most stunning waterfalls on the island. For a coastal retreat, tourists should head to the seaside villages of Saint-Gilles. Relax on the beach and watch the world go by or have a go at surfing in one of the many surfing hotspots. Hire a car in Reunion and you can make the most of the island's diverse attractions.
Although neighbouring country Mauritius drives on the left, Reunion's driving regulations require that drivers should proceed on the right. Due to the island's mountainous terrain, bad weather may cause landslides or road closures, so it's wise to be extra cautious if Reunion has a tropical storm. Volcanic activity is also common here, so it's wise to be aware of the strict access regulations leading up to the Piton de la Fournaise volcano.
