Practical information

Localisation

The 5th International OTEC Symposium will take place in Reunion Island, in the town of Saint-Pierre situated in the South of the Island.

Reunion Island is a French department in the Indian Ocean at about 500 miles East from Madagascar. Together with Mauritius and Rodrigue Islands, it forms the Mascareignes Archipelago. Reunion Island offers very diverse vacation opportunities with nice beaches, lagoons and coral reefs on the west coast, high mountains (up to 3000 m altitude), a paradise for hiking and canyoning, and the Piton de la Fournaise, one of the most active volcanoes in the world.

Reunion benefits from a tropical climate, a little windy on the east coast, due to the permanent southeast trade winds. The sun shines all year round, especially in the north, west and south of the island. Due to its hilly landscape, Reunion also experiences a wide variety of microclimates. November corresponds to Austral spring, air temperature between 25°C and 35 °C at sea level and water temperature around 27 °C.
