About Réunion

Réunion Coat of ArmsRéunion was for most of the people on this planet an unknown place until August 2015 when a fragment of the missing plane of Flight MH370 was found on the island. Réunion belongs to the Mascarene islands, an archipelago in the Indian Ocean, 740 km (460 mi) east of Madagascar and south west of Mauritius.

The island is 70.5 km long (43.8 mi, from north west to south east) and about 50 km (31 mi) wide, and of volcanic origin. Réunion's landscape is dominated by Piton de la Fournaise, currently one of the most active volcanoes in the world, and Piton des Neiges, a massive 3,069 m now dormant shield volcano, the origin of the island's creation.
