La Réunion in pictures

La Réunion – a small French island to the east of Madagascar and west of Mauritius – is a stunner. Mountains up to 3000m high; excellent road system to get to every corner and peak; delicious French pastries and cheese; and all sorts of outdoor activities available.

We were fortunate to have excellent weather for hikes up to one of the world’s most active volcanoes the “Piton de la Fournaise“, stunning views from La Maido and Cap Noir into the Cirque de Mafate, the impressive town of Cilaos within its own cirque, and on the eastern side to the pretty village of Hell-bourg in the Cirque de Salazie.

The photos in this gallery speak for themselves.

– Enjoy!

PS: I’ll be sure to add some helpful yachtie notes before we depart for Madagascar.
