Reunion


Réunion is an island located in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar, about 130 miles south west of Mauritius, the nearest island. The island is 39 miles long; 28 miles wide; and covers 970 square miles. It is similar to the island Hawaii insofar as both are located above hotspots in the Earth's crust.

Réunion is one of the overseas departments of France. Like the other overseas departments, Réunion is also one of the twenty-six regions of France (being an overseas region) and an integral part of the Republic with the same status as those situated on the European mainland.

Réunion is an outermost region of the European Union, and thus the currency used is the euro. In fact, due to its location in a time zone to the east of Europe, Réunion was the first region in the world to use the euro.
