L'Anse des Cascades, a picturesque bay
L'Anse des Cascades is a natural site in the municipality of Sainte-Rose at eastern Reunion Island. Closed for several months to the public in 2018 after the devastation of storm Fakir, you can once again admire its waterfalls in a green setting just next to the Indian Ocean.
In addition to its waterfalls, fall under the spell of a large coconut grove mixed with the vacoas that you can also discover during the famous holiday of vacoas. In the middle of this idyllic setting, you will discover a small Creole dry fishing port. If you are there at the right time, you can watch the boats pull up to the port.
Obviously, this little corner of paradise turns into a place of welcome for Reunion Islanders with the famous picnics on weekends and public holidays. An area is specially designed for this under the coconut grove of Anse des Cascades.
Then embark on a hiking digestive on the cliffs to Piton Sainte-Rose. There you can visit Notre-Dame-des-Laves, a miraculous church which escaped the entrance of the lava flows into its building on April 8, 1977. Climb its steps carved in the lava and admire the statue of the Virgin with the Parasol.
Get drunk with the scent of pei vanilla and forest coffee plantations, head to Bois Blanc! Discovery of the plantations and tastings are on the program. You can also contemplate the various plant species endemic to Réunion, walk on the trails of littoral and savor a real Creole picnic.
