Sainte Suzanne (Bassin Boeuf) canyon
Sainte Suzanne canyon is without doubt the best canyon for beginners and families on Reunion island.
The success of Sainte Suzanne is due to several factors :
- short approach and return
- moderate and never compulsory activities
- simply something special : swimming and jumping into crystal clear pools, little abseils next to impressive and beautiful waterfalls, zip lines. The descent always takes place into breathtaking nature.

An “exhausting” approach of about 5 minutes allows us to get to the heart of the matter.
The descent takes place into a river whith a lot of natural pools.
A small abseil allows access to the sumptuous “Bassin Nicole” pool. We continue with an optional jump into the next pool and then we arrive at the curiosity of the descent.
The river crosses a cave and falls into the next pool.
An abseil/zip line later we are on the snacking area where we can play with a lot of possible jumps.
Then comes the final pool of the initiation part with a zip line, and a 9 meter jump (not mandatory).
For Sainte Suzanne classic we walk back in a 15 minutes to the car park , and for Sainte Suzanne integral we continue the descent for about two more hours, with abseils, jump (6 meters), slide, and the breathtaking final into the last pool with a giant zip line.
