Saint-Leu is a small town on the west coast of Reunion which knows how to combine, like no other, sporting and cultural activities. Indeed, its lagoon and its beach shaded by the filaos welcome the lovers of bathing and idleness.

However, you can also practice scuba diving, golf, surfing or even paragliding for thrill seekers. Do not miss the visits to the Mascarin National Botanical Conservatory, the Stella Matutina Museum, the Pointe au Sel Salt Museum or the Kelonia Marine Turtles Observatory.

The hotel Blue Margouillat
