Day One highlights

While yesterday was the group's first full day on the island, excitement had been building since Sunday morning.

Air Austral gets you to Reunion Island in around four hours – and South Africans don't require a visa!

Day One dawned, and the bloggers spent the day hitting the beach and then enjoying a helicopter flip over an active volcano.

First day in Reunion was amazing. This place is absolutely breathtaking!#gotoReunion

On the agenda for the bloggers for Day Two: a drive around the island, seeing the sights and getting another view of the Piton de la Fournaise volcano, from the ground. Follow #GoToReunion for live updates!
