My wife & I walked to the Second Chute (waterfall) on our week-long visit in Guadeloupe and would highly recommend this. It was raining lightly but we didn't mind. The path to the second falls was incredibly well built and maintained - stone and wooden...More

A must see and do in Basse Terre. We only hike to the second chutes du Carbet. We did not have enough time for the other nor the right shoes. It was beautiful.

If you want a good hike in some pretty good rain forest conditions then this is a good attraction to come to and is well worth the very small entrance fee. If you are doing anything other than the nearest waterfall then come prepared -...More

We visited 1st and 2nd waterfalls. #2 is easily reached from the parking area (about 20 minutes along a very good route) - however, it is not so magnificent view, because the best spot has been closed after the 2004 landslide. The hike up to...More

The higher falls are accessed through the signposted national park entrance for a small fee, there is a good view from the platform above the entrance for those who cannot walk far, interesting to reflect that C Columbus saw these falls from the sea and...More

Hi Sandy, there are no easiest waterfalls staying by Grand Anse. You can may be try la 'Cascade aux Ecrevisses' but you will need to drive. Take care F F
