"Volcanic landscapes (both active and extinct) steal the show. The creation of a national park that covers a large share of the interior is a strong step towards safeguarding this treasure."
"Splendid environment including active volcano. A divided society with some tension between French and African/Creole peoples. French built heritage cherished, especially in the city."
"Very nice inland volcanic landscape, but the small reefs and lagoons are in bad condition. There is a lot to do and learn for those who want more than a beach. For beach and sea experiences, seek another destination."
"Alien species invasion and major infrastructure projects are threats. Generally serious attention given to environmental protection and to historic/archaeological structures. Aesthetic appeal is very high. Overall tourism development relatively careful."
