Réunion Island is a melting pot of cultures and customs, giving rise to a great diversity of traditions, which can be best witnessed in any of the festivals held throughout the year. Consider booking flights to Réunion for the 20 December celebrations taking place on the anniversary of the island’s abolition of slavery. It involves cultural events that take place throughout the island. Festivities include a parade through the main streets of the capital, Saint-Denis, as well as fireworks and concerts. For music lovers, be sure to book flights to Réunion to attend the 3-day Safiko Festival. Traditionally held in June in Saint-Pierre, this event brings together different genres of music from jazz and rock to hip hop and reggae and also features local blues and French pop. A fringe festival runs alongside the main stages, and the music takes over the town. Another popular event in Réunion is the Guava Tree Festival, also taking place in June. While the larger towns and cities across the island all celebrate this sweet fruit and the juices and desserts produced from it, the main carnival celebration takes place in Plaine des Palmistes, located in the east of the island.
With the diversity of cultures and peoples in Réunion, you may expect the cuisine to be just as diverse and varied, and you won’t be disappointed. With a mixture of flavours from French, Chinese and Indian cuisine as well as influences from East Africa and nearby Madagascar, the main dishes are often based on fish or poultry. Side dishes include rice and grains as wells achards, a spicy vegetable relish. When on the island, you should definitely try carri, a tasty Creole dish made with a choice of meat, poultry, or seafood, cooked in a rich tomato sauce that is seasoned with a range of spices, including turmeric and ginger. Served with plain rice to balance the spicy sauce, a great place to try out this dish is Le Reflect des Îles, a restaurant with a range of carri and traditional civet (stew) dishes, in Saint-Denis. Another popular option is the Sausage Rougail, a spicy fried dish with a mix of sausages cooked in an onion, chilli, and tomato sauce. Desserts in Réunion inevitably involve fruit such as mangos, litchis, or pineapple, eaten either fresh or in the form of sorbets.
