Reunion Island has Southern Hemisphere seasons and a tropical climate, tempered by the proximity of the Indian Ocean. The sun shines all year round and each region has its own microclimate.
The coast of the island always enjoys a hot or mild temperature. During the hot and humid summer from November to April, temperatures average 30°C although at altitude this can drop to ten degrees. This is the perfect time to indulge in diving or white water activities like canyoning.
The winter from May to October is the cool season. At altitude, the temperature cools significantly, while on the coast, particularly in the beach area (west), the water is still around 25 ° C.
It's worth noting that from June, and for four months thereafter, you can see the dance of humpback whales off the coast of the island.
