Breathtaking landscape of Mafate, right in front of La Nouvelle and with superb views on the various passes. The single option for non hikers to enjoy the crater without flying! Go early as the road is a bit long and it would be too bad...More

Incredible 360 panorama over Mafate Circuit. Do not miss it. Come early in the morning when there is more chance to have a clear sky. Take your camera!!!!

One of the must see points in Reunion island. Words are not enough to describe the view over Mafate Circus from 2.700 m altitude.

If you are in the north of the island and have only half a day to tour ... this is a very easy tour to do on your own by car. Great directions on perfect roads .. wonderful point of view at the top!

We arrived at about 9.30am and caught the view just before the clouds appeared. Spectacular and well worth the windy drive up there.

Pictures cannot quite do justice to how breath-taking this place is. Definitely worth the trip. Recommend an early start to get to the top before the clouds roll in and spoil the view
