Tamarins Forest Road : Michelin's recommendations
Tévelave is the gateway to the "Les Hauts great forest", swarmed with Réunion families on weekends. You can get there on the superb Tamarins Forest Road (RF 9), which starts after the Domaine des Fougères inn and connects with the Route du Maïdo (RF 8) about 30km to the north (allow 1hr). A variety of landscapes, trees and flowers unfurls along the way, with some fine viewpoints of the coast in places. There are numerous hiking trails for those keen to further explore the lovely Bois de Couleurs tropical forest.
