Cascade de Grand Galet, Saint-Joseph

4.8
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Saint-Joseph
Nestled within a national park, Cascade de Grand Galet serves as a popular weekend and holiday spot for swimming, snorkeling, and picnicking. A shaded road lined with fruit trees runs along the riverbank; along the way, a series of pools invite you to jump in--but you might save yourself for the crystal clear pool at the base of the waterfall. The sound of rushing water signals that you're near, then you'll see the cascades pouring out from the many crevices of a wide rocky wall. Take a walk behind the water curtain, but be careful not to slip. Plan a trip to Saint-Joseph easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Amazing series of waterfalls starting right next to the road. Cliff jumping and great swimming pools. Top spot on the island.
  • Very nice waterfall with comparably cold and refreshing water. The main pool is not too easy to reach through the river‘s bed, bring solid shoes to save you from sore feet.
