  • The road cuts the BASSE TERRE horizontally. It is very pleasant as it allows a total immersion in the rainforest. Along the way several stopping points to visit waterfalls, trek in the forest or simple walks and enjoy a picnic in nature (many tables available).

  • A really pleasant and fascinating road that crosses all the low-lying lands with an exciting path full of landscapes and evocative views.
