Pointe des Galets, Reunion

1-800-845-1717

Awaiting Your Return From Shore

With its active volcano, Reunion is often likened to Hawaii. Two thirds of the island’s western side is covered by mountain ranges; the 9,200-foot Piton des Neiges is the highest point. Between the alpine peaks and the coast grow palm trees, screw pines, casuarinas, sugar cane, spices, fruit and vegetable crops, tropical rain forests and an abundance of flowers, making the island appear as one big garden. 
Pier Information. The ship is scheduled to dock at Pointe des Galets’ New Port. Le Port town is about half a mile from the pier; due to the enormity of the port, walking is not recommended. The capital of St. Denis lies 12 miles north of the port. Taxis may have to be requested.
Shopping. The best selection of shops is found in St. Denis and the seaside resort of St. Gilles, 9 miles south from the port. Another choice is the Eperon Craft Village, located 9 miles up in the hills.
Cuisine. There is a choice of French, Indian, Chinese and Créole meals, with restaurants specializing in each.  Islanders enjoy wine with their meals. Also, try the local beer, Biere Bourbon. In general, expect prices to be rather high.
Other Sights
 St. Denis. The island's attractive, clean capital city is 12 miles north from the port. Besides an array of fairly expensive shops and restaurants, it also features a variety of impressive Creole mansions along the Rue de Paris. There are art galleries and a Botanical Garden with the Natural History Museum that you may want to explore. Please keep in mind that most everything closes down between 12 noon and 2 p.m.
 St. Gilles. About nine miles south is this seaside resort with some of the best hotels and restaurants on the island. The resort is especially crowded on weekEnd. Outside of town, the main attraction is the Ravine of St. Gilles, an area encompassing a stunning series of waterfalls and pools.
 Beaches. The best beaches are found in and around St. Gilles; snorkeling and scuba diving can be arranged here.
 Golf. The 18-hole golf course of the Club de Bourbon is 24 miles from the port; only 12 miles away is the Bassin Bleu 9-hole golf course. Guests interested in playing golf may check with the Tour Office on board for availability.
