 Reunion Island

Africa

This tropical island provides mainly reef breaks with worldwide famous breaks like St Leu. But even beginners can find spots on the rare beach breaks. Water temperatures are 24 to 30. The East coast has heavy rainfall. There's no lagoon. It's a rocky coastline. The West coast is completely different with lower rainfall. This coast has the best spots. You'll find reef spots here because of the lagoon.
November to April: Summer (hot and humid). It's the typhoon season.
May to October: Winter (cool and dry). It's the best time for surf.
