Treat yourself and your family to a fabulous trip to Reunion Island

Explore the regions of Reunion Island with complete peace of mind while the children are kept happy with sports and leisure activities suitable for their age group and supervised by qualified professionals. During your stay, the Ultimate Island offers original experiences to ensure the whole family enjoys a memorable holiday. Between water sports, hiking, cultural events and the Piton de la Fournaise volcano, check out our selection of suggestions for great family-friendly activities.

Live your passions by the sea!

Your trip starts on the west coast of the island in the heart of the beach resort of Saint-Gilles-les-Bains. To keep the children occupied while you serenely top up your tan on a beach with golden sand and turquoise lagoon, plan their water sports in the company of a professional instructor who will teach them to swim, take them snorkelling or windsurfing, or drawing pictures under the sea… To enjoy your holiday to the full, take them to Kélonia, the must-visit sea turtle museum, or to the Reunion Aquarium to learn about the island’s marine biodiversity and, in the evening, enjoy the fantastic sight of the sun sinking into the ocean. This quality time and the connection with the sea will delight the whole family. Before you go, check these recommendations for your holiday by the sea.

Visiting gardens and museums!

Reunion Island showcases its culture and expertise at some must-see sites. Visit history-steeped places like the museums and colonial houses. Stroll along the paths of the remarkable gardens of Reunion Island to see ancient trees, endemic and native plants, and flower-festooned mazes. Head for the Jardin de l’Etat in Saint-Denis, the Mascarin Botanical Garden of Reunion or the Maison du Coco in Saint-Leu, the Jardin des Parfums et des Epices in Saint-Philippe or the Cité du Volcan in La Plaine-des-Cafres, and learn all about the vanilla of Reunion Island.


Activities in the great outdoors!

Reunion Island is truly packed with unspoilt natural riches. It is ideal for anyone looking for a complete change of scene with the children. The “Pitons, cirques and ramparts” included in the UNESCO World Heritage list co-exist with the volcano, primary forests, sugarcane fields, botanical trails, basalt landscapes and the mountain pastures that stretch across the plains. When it comes to exploration and outdoor activities you won’t be disappointed: a hike with a difference in the Bélouve forest, an acrobatic adventure trail in the trees, a mountain bike excursion in Bébour forest, an escape to the Maïdo, or your first paragliding experience. Explore the south side of the island and stop off at the picturesque beach resort of Manapany. For a taste of the sweet life and the pure air of the cirques, head for Cilaos, go sailing on the Mare à Joncs, walk across the lush green landscape and stand at the foot of the Salazie waterfalls.
