Moreau Falls

Waterfall - Goyave

Although its volume of water is lower, Moreau Falls is almost as high as the second of the Carbet Falls, which rises to 110 meters (compared to 100 meters for the Raccoon Ravine Waterfall). With its four drops, Moreau Falls is one of the most beautiful sites in Guadeloupe. Allow up to six hours to reach the falls, enjoy the view, and return before nightfall. Travel over a forest road of volcanic tuff, recently resurfaced by the National Park of Guadeloupe, and park in the middle of the forest. The hike covers a distance of 8 kilometers, with a 270-meter rise in elevation, through a dense, harmonious rainforest of eucalyptus, mapou, and “bois bandé” trees. The trail follows the stream bed, crossing it several times. It begins along the Moreau River and its tributaries, and continues through the Mangle Ravine, which is also crossed several times, jumping from boulder to boulder. After several shallow crossings, the trail reaches the Mangle River fall. A second small fall that empties into the bottom of the ravine is then reached, followed by a third, much higher fall. The final ascent, involving scaling a sheer wall, is rewarded at last by the sight of the highest of the Moreau Falls, approximately 100 meters, the water dropping in several stages into a large pool. A magnificent setting in the heart of the tropical forest. Please note:  Be sure to check the weather forecast before beginning this hike, and only attempt it during dry weather; water levels rise quickly in the rain.
