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.

  • Nice stop crowded parking bcp of world but if you 30 to 45 MI Utes in front of you the waterfall deserves the stop

  • The place is lovely (pretty little waterfall with a pool where you can bathe), access is very easy and fast, but it's crowded! When we saw the parking lot, we quickly understood. This is not a must visit.

  • 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.
