Grand Iles

Reunion is born of two volcanoes - the dormant one from long ago in the west, and the still active one in the east. The dormant one, eventually collapsed and years of erosion later ended with three cirques, effectively a circular region of mountains - Cilaos, Mafate and Salazie. Hell Bourg is the main destination in Salazie, with Grand Iles, across the cirque the other main village/town.

Unlike Hell Bourg, Grand Iles is far sleepier, with no real tourist shops and just didnt seem to have any activity. We went there for the views, and well there was nothing else.
