The Maïdo forest road and viewpoint are reopening on Friday 5th March 2021. Take a revitalising trip to one of the island’s most beautiful viewpoints.
Closed last November after the forest fires, the Maïdo panoramic viewpoint will again be open to the public. This magnificent viewpoint of Reunion Island has undergone two months of work to make the site safe again. Safety barriers have been reinstalled and warning beacons and information panels have been added to make people aware of the situation, the potential danger and the temporary nature of the installations.
This natural site is a balcony overlooking Reunion Island. You’ll have a remarkable view over the Cirque of Mafate and the west coast of the island, lined with superb beaches. The Piton Maido on Reunion Island is a must-see, to be able to take in all the beauty of the island in one go.
Reunion Island is a mountainous island in the Indian Ocean, offering some absolutely fantastic panoramic views… The Piton Maido is in the highlands of Saint-Paul, and from up there, you’ll have a spectacular panoramic view of the Cirque of Mafate and the protected natural environment there. It is home to a number of îlets (small villages) and the locals will welcome you with open arms. The Cirque of Mafate can only be accessed on foot or by helicopter, for emergencies and exceptional cases! It’s therefore a great privilege to be able to look over this area from its high cliffs.
