Cilaos

Cilaos ©
Cilaos is a town and commune on the French island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean. Take a break from the city and head to Piton de Fournaise and Le fenetre Les Makes. Venture out of the city with trips to Helicopter Tours (in Saint-Pierre), Trois Roches (in Mafate) and Le Gouffre (in Etang Sale Les Bains). And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Piton des Neiges, admire the sheer force of La cascade de Bras Rouge, immerse yourself in nature at La Roche Merveilleuse, and hike along Crete des 3 Salazes.

Plan my Cilaos trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Cape Town, South Africa to Cilaos is an approximately 12.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Traveling from Cape Town to Cilaos, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Fri) so you can go by car to Saint-Joseph.
