Notre Dame des Lavex Church - Saint Rose

Travel to Saint-Rose – Nearby Waterfall & Lava Fields

Although Saint-Rose is only a small fishing town with a harbour, it is the area south of here that is of particular interest, where the first forks of lava from active Piton de la Fournaise have spread down the volcanic slopes of the mountain. Two attractions worthy of a visit are close by: Notre Dame des Laves and Anse des Cascades.

In Saint-Rose the only point of note in the town itself is a monument to Corbett, a youthful English naval commander who was killed in battle against the French in 1809.

Located on the East Coast of Reunion, Saint-Rose lies around 60 km south of Saint-Denis.

  • Pay a visit to the remarkable Notre Dame des Laves, a church enveloped by lava
  • Relax at the tiny fishing harbour and waterfall of Anse des Cascades
  • Discover ancient (and recent) lava flows on the road south to Saint-Philippe
