Cascade aux Ecrevisses, Parc National

3.5
#2 of 12 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.

  • Very nice place, it can be reached very easily and quickly thanks to its path. Suitable for young and old. Provide a spray mosquito repellent as the place is very wet.

  • Super chill! A bit crowded sometimes, but hey, you can't blame them, swimming in a waterfall under a verdant tropical canopy is so life-changing that everyone has to experience it. Although the name would lead one to believe that the place is crawling with crawfish, I personally did not see a single crustacean.
  • Beautiful scenic little waterfall! Be sure to go on a warm day and bring your bathing suit.
  • Pretty waterfall with a nice pool to swim. Easy to access though I wouldn't go out of your way if you are busy.
  • Easy and nice for kids and families. GREAT picnic places but no food there. Bring your stuff.
  • 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.
