 The Piton de la Fournaise, one of the most active volcanoes in the world.   Across the south 
of the island, the successive lava flows from Piton de la Fournaise have come down to the 
oceans, creating black sandy beaches with fine, hot sand when the sun is at its highest.

On the way, you will visit the Commerson crater before you descent to embrace the magic
of La Plaine des Sables. The beaches form an exceptional landscape, surrounded by arid
plant life and enough to inspire poetry.

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to walk on the moon? You might have some idea
after exploring the volcanic and lunar scenery that only Reunion Island can offer.
                              
When you get to the base of the volcano, the scenery of the Wils South creates a visual 
spectacle, with craggy basalt cliffs, the green of lush vegetation and the deep blue of the
Indian Ocean
.

You will get the chance to see the picturesque Church of Sainte-Anne which is a replica
of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, the suspended bridge and also the miracle of
Sainte-Rose Piton spared
by the lava flow of 1977.

At "Grand Brule" discover the "Vierge au Parasol" and the various lava flows.
