The village of Saint-Gilles-les-Bains is located on the west coast of the island of Reunion. It is very popular with tourists as it is the main seaside resort on the island. Its Roches Noires beach is a hotspot for surfers, but Saint-Gilles-les-Bains offers much more than that: a sea aquarium, botanical gardens, a harbour and an outdoor theatre. Visitors have an ample choice of hotels to choose from. The village is also popular with politicians and celebrities.
