Introduction to Reunion Island
Reunion is a popular spot with sun-seeking holidaymakers thanks to its ideal position in the Indian Ocean just east of Madagascar. The French overseas territory is home to a great deal of tourist attractions, so hotels in Reunion can be found all across the island. The best thing about the accommodations is the amount of choice you are offered. You will find normal establishments of all varieties and prices, as well as privately run mountain lodges and cabins in the central areas. There are also a number of youth hostels on the island for those looking for cheaper accommodation. Probably the biggest choice of lodgings is within the capital city of Saint-Denis. For those looking for a sea-view, however, Saint-Gilles on the west coast is a good place visit. You will find white sand beaches here and calm waters, so those who wish to surf would do better heading to Saint-Leu. There are also some good options for buildings in Saint-Pierre and Etang-Sale. The latter is a small town by the island's west coast, which is home to the famous black sand beach.
