We took this road in order to hike to the Grand Benare peak. Is very well guarder, with one of the best view points. Try to go early in the morning, more chances of clear sky. From the parking place we went to the summit...More

Was there with a group of friend to discover the beautiful spot of the island.Me and my husband after a long road trip was amazed with the view point offered at Maido a little bit cold but it worth to go there.

If you are in the north of the island and have only half a day to tour ... this is a very easy tour to do on your own by car. Great directions on perfect roads .. wonderful point of view at the top!

We arrived at about 9.30am and caught the view just before the clouds appeared. Spectacular and well worth the windy drive up there.

Despite having to drive up a very windy road, the view at the top was definitely worth it! Would recommend getting early to avoid cloud cover.

If you go to Mafate or another walk in the mountains ... just go to Maido to see your achievements from another point of vieuw. Fare out the best view on the mountains.

If there are clouds, I wouldn't go. If you've already driven up Piton de Fournaise, you'll be used to fatiguing, winding roads. Be aware that, for me at least, this drive was much worse. Budget in some fatigue from driving. At the top, there are...More

Don't miss out going to the top of Le Maido. It's easy to find and plenty of parking at the top plus a very friendly chap running the cafe at the top. Lots of hairpin bends but nothing too scary on the way up. The...More

It's a must! Should not be missed! It is the most beautiful and exciting view of the island! After these phrases for effect, if you visit Reunion, you have to go to Maido to look the Cirque de Mafat, but please arrive to Le Maidò...More
