Bourg-Murat



Bourg-Murat is located on the RN3 road, that goes from Saint-Pierre to Saint-Benoit. It is the entrance of the road accessing to the piton de la Fournaise volcano, one of the main attraction of Réunion island. There can you also visit a volcano museum.

Bourg-Murat (1560m) is the starting point of the RF5 road, also called "the volcano road (la route du volcan)" and is one of the 15 Reunion villages labelled "Village créole" (www.villagescreoles.re).

Bourg-Murat is also a pleasant place to stay with fresh air and is a good starting point to hike around :
- the botanical trail: Notre-Dame-de-la-Paix , with a vertiginous point of view overlooking the Rivière des Remparts
- excursion to the Grand Bassin
- one of the two accesses to the piton des Neige summit starts 2km north from the village (direction "Plaine des Palmistes", on the RN3).
