The scenery on the way to the waterfall is breathtaking. The waterfalls and pools are worth the drive up the ravine. Take your swimming suit with. You will want to dip into that clear blue water.

After driving from the west of the island, the road we had to take was immediately left after crossing the river, beside a sugar cane depot. The road starts off being quite bumpy but reasonably wide as you drive along the river valley. There are...More

Just an amazing site to visit. These waterfalls are just breathtaking. To view the waterfalls is very simple as it enjoys easy access from the road. Note that the road leading to Cascade de Grand Galet is a bit of a challenge, but trust me...More
