I took this little trip one day to see what all the fuss is about. It's simply beautiful. I was lucky I did it during a week day when the weather wasn't the best. When I got to the waterfall I was the only person...More

The scenery on the way to the waterfall is breathtaking. The waterfalls and pools are worth the drive up the ravine. Take your swimming suit with. You will want to dip into that clear blue water.

After driving from the west of the island, the road we had to take was immediately left after crossing the river, beside a sugar cane depot. The road starts off being quite bumpy but reasonably wide as you drive along the river valley. There are...More

Just an amazing site to visit. These waterfalls are just breathtaking. To view the waterfalls is very simple as it enjoys easy access from the road. Note that the road leading to Cascade de Grand Galet is a bit of a challenge, but trust me...More

Beautiful and wild place for a swimming, pure water. To walk down to the waterfall to have a bath it's rather difficult, put on the right right shoes that can go wet and take with you just the minimun necessary. The road to drive there...More
