Bras De Fort

The Bras De Fort waterfall in Goyave

Let’s leave the Lamateliane cottages in Guadeloupe for a river bath at the Bras de Fort waterfall in Goyave,
also called “Mateliane cascade”, and located on the road to Moreau.

Enough easy access (ideal for families with young children) and only 10km from our rentals,
this little known and uncommon site will unveil you a pretty waterfall whose swimming pool invites you to bath.

The access is in 3 parts : a road of farming, then a forest trail in undergrowth,
before going along the Bras de Fort riverbed for about 400 meters.

It takes approximately 45 minutes to reach the river.
The trail, which is fairly easy on the whole, nevertheless has a rather steep and slippery part.
We cross the river twice before arriving at the basin, so be careful not to go there in case of heavy rain.

Arrived at the edge of the water, one discovers a little farther a basin of clear water
in which flows a charming waterfall of about twenty meters in 2 stages.
