Saint-Leu The Essential
Recommended
Saint-Leu is famous for its left wave, which throws up a challenge eagerly met by world-class surfers every June. The town is also renowned for the pilgrimage to Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette. Held every year on 19 September, it is a reminder that the severe cholera epidemic took no victims here. Those in search of seaside pleasures will enjoy the beach protected by a coral reef, not to mention the three most important museums on the island, where Réunion's cultural and natural heritage is carefully preserved.
