Reunion Island records outstanding tourist arrival numbers

Reunion Island, one of the Vanilla Islands of the Island Ocean alongside Comores, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mayotte and Seychelles, has recorded a historical growth in tourist arrivals for the first semester 2017, with 228 672 visitors representing an increase of 14.9% compared to the same period last year.

Those figures have never been achieved until now. Metropolitan France remains the main market with 166 869 tourists for the period. In the region, there has also been an exceptional increase of 88% in tourist arrivals mainly from Mauritius and Mayotte.

The cruising activities have contributed to these figures too with more than 10 000 passengers and crew members landing on La Reunion between January and April.
