Salazie is 17km by road from the nearest coastal town, St-André. The road through the Cirque is magnificent, but hair-raising in sections. The road to Grand Îlet turns off the Hell-Bourg road just south of Salazie.
There are six buses daily from St-André to Salazie (€2, 35 minutes). If you're travelling to Hell-Bourg and Grand Îlet by bus, you'll have to change here.
