Just like Cilaos, Salazie is well-known for its canyoning routes such as “le trou blanc” or “le trou de fer” and for the hiking trails spread across the cirque including the trail of “le col des bœufs” which leads to Mafate.

Salazie and Cilaos used to have another point in common,thermal waters. Unfortunately, during a cyclone, a landslide destroyed the thermal baths of Salazie and they disappeared.

because of the high pluviometry, Salazie is full of waterfalls, the most famous is most probably ‘le voile de la mariée“, visible from the road leading to the village of “Hell-bourg”. As per the legend, long time ago, a rich man and poor girl fell in love. Her father was against that love.
