St Gilles is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the French-owned island of Reunion. Situated on the west coast, it is famous for its sandy beaches that flank the Indian Ocean. There are many beach resorts and hotels here, with the area perfectly tailored to fit every visitor's needs, and the best way to explore here is by car hire in St Gilles.
The town boasts a pretty little port, with boats of all size and stature mooring there. Here you can also arrange fishing expeditions and day trips with just a day's notice. Though the area is mainly made up of big resorts, cheap car hire in St Gilles will allow you to find the hidden corners of the town that are often neglected by visitors.
If you feel the need to explore a little further in your car rental at St Gilles however, the town of Le Port is not far to the north. From here you can easily navigate to the island's main district of Saint-Denis and the capital city of Chaudron.
Chaudron is well known for its unemployment-fuelled riots in the 1990s, but is now a popular spot for tourists, with more shops and restaurants than most other areas. The surrounding district of Saint-Denis also boasts the tranquil Jardin de l'Etat and the Leon Dierx art museum.
A little further east you will find the former agricultural town of Saint-Marie, where you will find 19th century houses among bazaars and Chinese shops. The area is served by the Roland Garros Airport, which is also easily reached by hire car.
