The island is mainly forests, steep rocks, waterfalls and only a few sandy beaches.
The island was discovered by the Europeans in 1505 but the old Arabs knew it also. It became French in 1638 and was called Ile Bourbon during Napoleon times, later it was called Ile Bonaparte.
Reunion produces sugar, fruits, vanilla, tobacco and meat but also a famous vine from the Cilaos valley.

The local cuisine is remarkable, a mix of French, Indian and Creolian influences.
