Cilaos is a town and commune on the French island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean. La Maison de la Broderie and Observatoire des Makes will appeal to museum buffs.

Get out of town with these interesting Cilaos side-trips: Helicopter Tours (in Saint-Pierre) and Saint-Louis (Jardin de Bonsais & Reserve biologique des Makes). And it doesn't end there: immerse yourself in nature at La Roche Merveilleuse, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, boost your wellbeing at Thermes de Cilaos, and cruise along Col du Taibit.
