Cascade aux Ecrevisses, Parc National

3.5
#2 of 7 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.

    Since the road to the crossing in the heart of Basse Terre a small path tiled 50 meters along the river "arm David" takes you to the waterfall. Swim... fresh water.

    Do compellingly during the very early morning hours, then that's fine. Otherwise a hassle, the only advantage is the ease of access.

    To stop if we pass but nothing exciting. The décor is nice. There was a lot of people. Bathers but don't want to join... That said, it's worth stopping but not to go around the island.

    Waterfall and the tropical forest at its best, made available with few steps from the road.

    Small hike to a nice waterfall.

    A very pleasant stop on the way. The transition in two pages and view should take no more 20 minutes. The beauty of the jungle. Recommend.

    Not bad, but a lot of people even in low season. Close to the surrounding River for a moment freshness in peace.
