Sainte-Suzanne is a commune on the north coast of the French island and department of Réunion. It is bordered by the communes of Saint-André, Sainte-Marie and Salazie. The course of the Saint-Jean River denoted the border between Saint-André and Saint-Suzanne. The town, along with Saint-Denis, was founded in 1667 by Étienne Regnault, the first governor of the island.
The following people were natives of Sainte-Suzanne:
- Edmond Albius (1829–1880), a slave who discovered the artificial pollinisation of vanilla.
- Élie Hoarau (born 1938), politician.
- René-Paul Victoria (born 1954), politician.
