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. Using our international travel planner, Parc National attractions like Cascade aux Ecrevisses can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Cascade aux Ecrevisses Reviews
Attention, le site est beau et très très facile d accès, donc BEAUCOUP de monde! Vu qu il faut marcher moins de 5 minutes sur un joli chemin de pavés, c est un site très fréquenté! Nous y sommes allés... more »The site is beautiful and very very easy to access, so a lot of people! Since you have to walk less than 5 minutes on a pretty path of pavers, c is a busy site! We went there around 4 pm impossible to bathe and even less to take a picture! On the other hand, I advise you to get there early around 7:30-8: 00 (what we have done so! We went there!) and there, superb, we were alone we really enjoyed the place! So the water is in the vicinity of 20-22•c once inside we're super good!
Lorsque l’on prend la route de la traversée, on traverse donc le parc national et cette activité est facile à trouver. Par contre, il est vrai que s’il y a du monde, ce n’est pas facile à garer.

On the other hand, it is true that if there is of the world, it is not easy to park. On this site you can visit the craft shop and loved local products manufactured with the coconut. You can access the waterfall, there are signs of information in French and Brail. The course is very well laid out and secured. The waterfall can bathe, but watch out for pebbles that are slippery. Back, just across the road, down the stairs and we have access to a lovely area for lunch. It's nice and it's at the edge of the water. We can continue its way while walking in the Park, but there is more route. A really nice place that I recommend in good weather in Guadeloupe. In January, we had rain every day for 15 minutes.
Petit arrêt à la cascade, assez sympathique comme paysage. On peut s'y baigner attention eaux froides. more »Quick stop at the waterfall, quite friendly as landscape. You can swim attention cold waters.
Pretty waterfall with a nice pool to swim. Easy to access though I wouldn't go out of your way if you are busy.
The waterfalls are beautiful and it connects to a river. You can enter the waterfall or the river. The Rocks are very slippery and there aren't many safe guards in this respect (ropes etc) so you are at your own risk.
Awesome natural waterfall where you can swim in real jungle river
Not very attractive
