    Beautiful ballad by car, we're going through a beautiful rain forest for crossing Basse Terre. Many start hike, beautiful points of view or place to see / to visit along the way. You really take this road as an activity in its own right to take the time to discover the nooks of this road.

    Beautiful road well bodied and great practice from Basseterre to main-land. Through the rainforest where you can make the stops, visits or the hiking.

    To switch easily from one side to the other. Starting points for hikes, visit the House of the forest, go see the waterfall with crayfish, refreshing courses.
