3. You can go canyoning in Reunion island’s waterfalls
While undeniably spectacular from afar, the waterfalls that jut out of the mountains surrounding the town of Cialos, in the center of the island, are a playground for adventurous water sports — such as canyoning. The most impressive of these waterfalls are several hundred meters tall, broken up at intervals by blue-green natural pools, and ideal for newbies and experienced canyoners alike to rappel through. For those in need of a guide and/or gear, Cilaos based Run Evasion can set you up with both for a day of canyoning.
