Cascade aux Ecrevisses, Parc National

#2 of 11 in Nature in Basse-Terre Island
Swim in the cool waters underneath Cascade aux Ecrevisses. The waterfall itself is pleasant, but small and not particularly noteworthy. However, the pool below is rarely crowded, and swimming in the cool waters amid the sights and sounds of the rainforest can be a surreal experience. If you're looking for an adrenaline rush, you can jump off the nearby rock faces into the pool, but watch your step on the slippery rocks. After your swim, follow a nearby footpath to reach a quiet picnic area next to the river, where you can dry off and relax.

  • Very nice waterfall, parking nearby, accessible to children as well as people with reduced mobility 5min walk but a lot of people, the best is to go there early enough in the morning

  • No need for hiking boots or mosquito spray. The easiest few paces to the waterfall. Very easy for people for handicap issues to get to. Parking and cute shop on site. So beautiful! The water is so fresh and quite strong
  • Beautiful waterfall with chance to take a dip in the middle of the jungle. Just a 5 minute stroll from the parking. Pretty quiet though. Would get 5 stars if it wasn't that crowded with people.
