Roche Marveilleuse (Wonderful Rock)

It's about 3km hike up from the spa, or a short drive with absolutely stunning views of Piton des Neiges and the Cirque de Cilaos. We did it fairly early, so it was quite cool (needed an additional layer of clothing) and the hike is mostly through the forest, so it's shaded most of the way up.

The view of Piton des Neiges is immediately to the left as you finish the hike. There is an awesome view point (a short climb up some steps) and a picnic area a bit further up the road. The view point gives a full 360 - so worth coming here, especially on a clear day. We walked the road back - Buttner distance was more or less the same.
