THE CHUTES DU CARBET
Trois Rivières

The “Chutes de la rivière du Grand Carbet” [The waterfalls of the Grand Carbet River] are among the most impressive waterfalls of the Lesser Antilles. This river probably owes its name to the American Indian village, consisting of “carbets” (large open huts, serving as shelter), which were built not far from its mouth.

 

The Grand Carbet River has its source on the eastern flank of the Soufrière. Its sulphurous waters become clear after three falls and throw themselves into the sea, on the Atlantic coast of the island, 11km downstream.

  

It is said that Christopher Columbus, when he landed on Guadeloupe in November 1493, saw the first two falls from the shore of Capesterre Belle-Eau.

  

THE SITE 
 The first fall makes in two stages a total drop of 115 m (3 hours roundtrip from the parking)
 The second fall, a drop of 110 m, is the best known (45 min roundtrip from the parking)
 The third fall results from a drop of 20 m, into a beautiful circular basin. It is especially impressive as a result of its volume of water.
