With 30 km of white or black sandy beaches and 22 km of lagoon, all particularly well preserved, Reunion Island has very varied coastlines, great for nature walks and swimming.
Where can you go swimming on Reunion Island ?
Due to the particularly abundant marine wildlife, swimming, water sports and diving are forbidden within a perimeter of 300 m around the Reunion Island coastlines. The Reunion Island lagoons are protected by a coral reef.
However, there are special swimming areas that are safe and with lifeguards, much to the joy of those looking to enjoy the waves:
Roches Noires Beach
You could go to Roches Noires, a pretty white sandy beach with a swimming area with lifeguard, equipped with nets and a natural swimming pool.
Boucan Canot Beach
In Boucan Canot, the huge beach is very popular thanks to the swimming area equipped with a net, and area devoted to those wanting to practice their strokes !
At Ermitage Beach, there isn’t a swimming net, but there is an area reserved for swimmers that is relatively shallow. This is a favourite spot for families and fans of snorkelling !
