Réunion is an island and region of France in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar and 175 kilometres (109 mi) southwest of Mauritius. The island became an overseas department of France in 1946. As elsewhere in France, the official language is French. In addition, the majority of the region's population speaks Réunion Creole. Réunion hosts many tropical and unique beaches. Hermitage Beach is the most extensive and best preserved lagoon in Réunion Island and a popular snorkelling location. Réunion is home to a variety of birds such as the white-tailed tropicbird. Its largest land animal is the panther chameleon, Furcifer pardalis. Much of the West coast is ringed by coral reef which harbours, among other animals, sea urchins, conger eels and parrot fish. Sea turtles and dolphins also inhabit the coastal waters.
