We visited both the first and second falls. The hike to the first is on a well marked path which is rugged in places. Walking boots recommended. The walk to the second falls is more of a family walk. The falls are fantastic and the...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!

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.

We visited this after hiking la souffriere and though our legs were tired it was worth the walk! There was plenty of parking, although the drive to the parking area was adventurous - windy and narrow. When we arrived we were charged $2.50 per person...More
