Day 1

Saint-Denis - Hellbourg

Arrival at Saint-Denis airport, welcome and pick-up of the rental car. For those who feel like it, the city tour comes absolutely recommended: strolling through St-Denis is like reliving the past. This tropical city is still steeped in colonial influences and accents. From the '' Rue de Paris '' and its beautiful Creole houses with iron-wrought balconies and porches decorated with white lambskins you reach le Grand Marché which easily withstands all comparison with an exotic souk: souvenirs, embroidered table cloths, wooden games ... You get the picture. And as you soar to your endpoint, the Barachois coastal road, it is nice to stop at the "Vanilleraie" in Ste Suzanne (not included) where the Bourbon vanilla is still grown in a traditional way and at the largest Tamil temple on the island, the Kolosse temple in St-André. Next, Nature comes knocking at your door near the cirque Salazie. This is the most accessible, the largest and greenest part of the island; a constantly 'watered' agricultural area where sugar cane, banana, bamboo, vegetables ... flourish. The climb to Salazie takes you along a scenic path along the rivière du Mât and smuggles you into a giant garden of greenery and waterfalls including 'The Bridal Veil'.
