Cruise 2 day stop in Reunion

As our Madagascar 2 day visit has been cancelled because of the plague risk, our Fred Olsen cruise has added an extra day in Reunion instead! I had already booked the helicopter flight over Reunion and just hope the weather is kind as it may be cancelled if not and that would be the second disappointment on this cruise. Can anyone tell me where on Reunion the cruise ships berth and where is the nearest safe beach for swimming - no diving thanks and definitely no sharks! Also what is there to see nearby other than the aquarium, waterfall and not very interesting gardens?

There is very little recent information on Trip Advisor from cruise visitors.

Hello,

You don't say how you plan on getting around, which will make a difference to how far you can travel to see things.

The nearest safe swimming beach is at l'Hermitage, on the west coast, which is protected by a lagoon. The ship berths in Le Port on the north-west coast, about 20/25 km away. You'll either have to use a taxi, public transport, hire a car, or join an organised tour to get there.
