Maido viewpoint. The Maïdo is located in the mountains of San Pablo, and is home to one of the most spectacular views of the island during the Cirque Mafate and much of the west coast. The ride there is a good outing in itself, as the drive takes you through one of the beautiful forest of tamarind trees in Reunion. The Maïdo also a starting point for hikes leading to Mafate excellent and also to the Grand Bénare, third highest peak of the island, at an altitude of 2898m.
