4. Lagoon

The lagoon of Reunion Island is safe, and the turquoise waters house a colourful fauna. As the water level is low, it is easy to walk with kids and to observe underwater with a mask. Some shacks on the beach will rent you transparent kayak or paddle to enjoy the lagoon even more.

The Dominical Picnic is an institution in Reunion Island. The Reunion Families rush to the picnic spots all around the Island with pots full of delicious homemade carrys.
