1. Pat’Jaune’s Cabaret

One of our tops and who has just reopened after a few months of closure (thank you COVID), I named the Cabaret Pat’Jaune. A Yab cabaret at the Plaine des Cafres (“Yab” describes white creole people that live in Reunion) . Between meal and show, the group’s history, local songs between the starters and the main course … no time to get bored! A great time that we recommend without hesitation!

2. Brew your own beer !
Alone or between friends, for a fun and original moment, try the beer brewing workshop of Brasseries Dalons (“dalon” mean friend). From the mixture of cereals to the near final fermentation, make your own beer in a super nice atmosphere! A brand new workshop opened in June 2021!

3. La Tisanerie du Sud / Herbel Tea garden
After the beer brewing workshop you need a little wellness cure? Go meet Valmyr at his home in Saint-Joseph (south). He will make you discover the plants of his garden, the old plants and their virtues. A few tastings of herbal teas prepared just for you, it’s a pleasant little moment with a passionate about our island’s flora.

4. Visit Hellbourg’s village (Salazie)
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never set a foot in Hellbourg, or on the contrary, if you’ve been there many times. The visit of the village with Romeo remains a great moment, pleasant and educational. Lots of anecdotes and information that will make you shine during your next stays in Salazie.

5. Savanna distillery
Sugar cane is an essential part of Reunion’s history and economy. If you want to immerse yourself in the heart of its transformation, we recommend the Savanna distillery (can be paired with the Bois Rouge sugar refinery depending on the season). From sugar to rum, you will go through all the stages of the process with a little tasting to finish your visit!

6. Maison du Volcan, Volcano museum
After sugar, another essential element of our island… even more essential. Indeed, without him, Reunion Island would not exist! So if you want to understand how our beautiful Caillou (stone) emerged , do not hesitate to go for a walk to the Volcano museum (Maison du Volcan). Playful, it’s a fun visit for adults and children.

7. Maison du Coco / Coco House
We take a giant step between the Volcano’s House and the Coco’s House! If you like coconut in all its forms, water, milk, oil, sugar… then you will love the visit to the Maison du Coco! We will teach you to braid the coconut, to cut it, to grate it… and above all to taste it ! A pleasant and educational moment at the Colimaçons in Saint-Leu.

This is the 1st production of organic tea in France. And yes, on our little Caillou (little island), at Grand Coude, a magnificent plateau perched at an altitude of 1100 meters in the vicinity of Saint Joseph. There you will learn all about planting from tree to cup as they say.
