Was there with a group of friend to discover the beautiful spot of the island.Me and my husband after a long road trip was amazed with the view point offered at Maido a little bit cold but it worth to go there.
If you are in the north of the island and have only half a day to tour ... this is a very easy tour to do on your own by car. Great directions on perfect roads .. wonderful point of view at the top!
Pictures cannot quite do justice to how breath-taking this place is. Definitely worth the trip. Recommend an early start to get to the top before the clouds roll in and spoil the view
Despite having to drive up a very windy road, the view at the top was definitely worth it! Would recommend getting early to avoid cloud cover.
If you go to Mafate or another walk in the mountains ... just go to Maido to see your achievements from another point of vieuw. Fare out the best view on the mountains.
If there are clouds, I wouldn't go. If you've already driven up Piton de Fournaise, you'll be used to fatiguing, winding roads. Be aware that, for me at least, this drive was much worse. Budget in some fatigue from driving. At the top, there are toilets and a cafe.
Don't miss out going to the top of Le Maido. It's easy to find and plenty of parking at the top plus a very friendly chap running the cafe at the top. Lots of hairpin bends but nothing too scary on the way up. The views at the top behind the cafe are breathtaking. You can feel the up draft... 更多

The Piton Maido gives a incomparable point of view over the valley but the road is long to get there and you need to be early, especially in hot season because after 10AM, it goes from sunny to cloudy in less of 5 min and then, you cannot see anything
Although the weather forecast said the weather would be beautiful on Le Maido, we were disheartened to find the clouds had gathered by the time we left (much later than planned) and we made our way upwards through increasingly thick mist, wondering whether we were being very stupid to continue. However the beautiful forests kept us going through the hairpin... 更多
