Entertainment

An island that likes to put on a show !

Concert halls, open-air theatres and café-concerts offer great opportunities to enjoy the rhythm of the island

With twenty-five concert halls, seven café-concert venues, an open-air theatre and plenty of bands and festivals that promote all types of music (from traditional to electronic), Réunion bubbles with cultural events. So much so that you will soon abandon your hotel room to go bat’ carré (walk around) in search of the rhythm of the island

Naturally, there’s the sky, the sun and the sea… but when the sun sets, there’s no question of following its example! In Réunion, the cultural life is intense, multi-faceted, plural, fuelled by traditions (especially from a musical perspective with the heritage of the Maloya and the Séga). It relentlessly draws on the past to invent the future of the people from Reunion, through theatrical creations and festivals, or on stage in cafés.

About those cafés… In Saint-Leu, La Rondavelle (a “rondavelle” is a small circular structure resembling a closed newspaper kiosk), also called La Ronda chez Jean-Paul, opens its stage on weekends. All genres are welcome and the lively atmosphere is guaranteed by an unstoppable combo: seaside, sunset and local beer. Not to be missed !
