Reunion – The Island of Rivers

The magical French island offers a convenient French flavour but so much more accessible with the short 4 hour flight to France, or what felt like it anyway! The winding roads, the magnificent patisseries lining them and the incredible kicking coffee to ensure you’re very much present for this incredible adventurous destination.

A volcanic island suitably located in the heart of the Indian ocean and aptly offers plenty of outdoor open spaces. Unfortunately the shorter flight time doesn’t warrant much saving on flight pricing with the fares and fees comparable to an European destination, comfort however seems to be of importance within the destination and amongst the refreshingly welcoming people. Your stay in Island of Rivers could comprise of a diverse range of interesting adventures and explorative excursions, they can be arranged both guided or if french speaking self drive (for those most adventurous) – wonderful scenery and magical locations offer incredible memories for any island loving traveller.

There are no specific health risks in Reunion. No vaccinations are necessary before coming, except for those passengers flying in from a country currently affected by cholera or yellow fever. There is no malaria risk in Reunion, but it’s still advised to protect yourself from mosquito bites.

The advanced medical and pharmaceutical network means that it’s easy to get your hands on all kinds of medicine and hygiene products so no need to fret too much time on worrying if you have everything. Protect your children from the sun, especially on the beach and up in the mountains (sun cream, long-sleeved t-shirts and headgear). For long drives up in the mountains, it is prudent to take preventative measures against carsickness – careful with that coffee!

Réunion Island is part of Europe, and is a safe island. However you do need to apply common sense: avoid walking out alone at night, in isolated areas, do not show that you have large sums of money or valuable objects on you. Do not bathe unless there is a lifeguard. During any water activities, we advise you to comply with all current safety regulations (prevention of shark risks). And you too can do your bit to protect Réunion Island.
