Hidden in the backwoods off the Souillac to Chemin Grenier road follow the hand written red paint written signs and its quite easy to find. Interesting rock formations, easy parking although the dirt track is quite challenging, but worth the visit.

Rochester Falls is in the south of the island. The cliff face has been has been transformed into jagged rectangular blocks by the force of powerful water over hundreds of years. The contrast between the black of the granite rock and the white of the falling water makes this truly spectacular....it's a quiet place. It doesn't get as many visitors... More

This place is little hard to find but worth visiting. We went by taxi even though we had taken a self driven car. It's really scenic. Do take a dip. You may also find a guy showing off his skills by jumping from a tree above the cliff right into the water from insane height.

Encompassed in a beautiful scenery, the falls are situated in the District of Savanne. The road to this not very rugged but once the place is spotted, it's totally serene. There is no direct path that leads to the falls. One will have to climb down the rocks and through a rugged stretch. We had our 5 yr old and... More

Rochester falls is a must if you like the outdoors, however depending on the time you visit it could be very muddy and slippery, wear comfortable and sturdy shoes. there is a bit of walking involved going down a little hill. but once you get to the falls it is really worth it, Lava flow dating several thousands of years...

It takes some time to get there, the road is in a dilapidated state. And you have to walk the last part along a field path. Once there you know why you made the effort. A tranquil place with a lot of green space. Take a swim in the crystal clear water and just relax. Nice atmosphere. It is unlikely... More

A bit hard to find if you are driving by your own and not taking a taxi. Best visiting in early morning. Best light for taking photos.

Fantastic waterfalls located in the South of the island near the coast between the villages of Souvillac and Saint Aubin. That place can be reached by car. In order to get close to the waterfalls one needs to go off the road and drive along a rather rough bridle path. In such a case it’s recommendable to drive a sturdy... More
