Saint-Leu is a commune in the French overseas department of Réunion. Get out of town with these interesting Saint-Leu side-trips: Saint-Paul (Maido, Ravine Bernica, &more), Helicopter Tours (in Saint-Pierre) and Aquasens (in Saint-Joseph). The adventure continues: fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, take in the natural beauty of Trou du Souffleur, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Aquarium de la Reunion, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Kelonia.
