The Carbet falls refer to actually 3 waterfalls so do some check on which one you want to visit as they require different levels of effort. If you are for a light walk (a bit of stairs climbing still involved) you can do the trail...More

Les Chutes de Carbet consists of three waterfalls - two bigger (over 100 m) and one smaller (20 m). They’re located in the jungle on Basse-Terre island. The views are simply amazing. A must-see when visiting Guadeloupe!

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
