It’s impossible to get bored in Saint-Denis de La Réunion. Whether you want to run, walk or stroll, everyone goes at their own pace in the capital, with the many sports and leisure activities on offer.
Take in the relaxing vibe !
Take a stroll along the Barachois, the seafront in Saint-Denis dotted with old cannons, and take in the relaxing vibes from the ocean. For those looking for a leisurely stroll, there’s a long footpath for a very pleasurable and relaxing experience. Children’s play areas, food trucks to treat yourself to a “pain bouchon” sandwich, samosas, a “dodo” beer… The small things in life are definitely the best.
Go for a wander !
Head to the Parc de la Trinité in Saint-Denis which is next to the Champ-Fleuri sports centre. The park is a wide-open space where families can come and enjoy the children’s play areas and climb up the hill. Avid joggers particularly like going to the top of the hill to admire the breath-taking view from the top, overlooking the capital. Quite close by, the whole family will enjoy a day out at the Aquanor water park.
Practice your swing !
Get out your very best clubs at the Colorado Golf Course in Saint-Denis. This mountain golf course overlooking the sea is a 9-hole course, 4,792 metres long and 68 metres wide. This narrow course is technical and requires accuracy, dexterity and perseverance! There are some superb panoramic views from the golf course, especially the 180° view of the Indian Ocean from hole number 3.
Lie back and relax!
The village of Brûlé in the Saint-Denis highlands awaits, for a shiatsu head massage and a cup of green tea, to be enjoyed surrounded by nature at the Spa Liza Case Zen. Unless you prefer to go and visit a Creole garden at the Vallée Heureuse. The owner will welcome you in person and take you on a two-hour tour!
Set off on an adventure!
