Cilaos is a town and commune on the French island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean. Take a break from the city and head to Canyoning & Rappelling Tours and RN5 Road. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cimetiere Paysager de Hell-Bourg and Marche Forain du Chaudron. Change things up with these side-trips from Cilaos: Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Saint-Philippe), Rue de Paris (in Saint-Denis) and Spas (in Le Tampon). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at La Roche Merveilleuse, see the interesting displays at Musee des Musiques et Instruments de L'ocean Indien, and browse the exhibits of La Maison de la Broderie.
