The Maniquet Waterfall, sanctuary for guava trees

Easy and pleasant walk, to enjoy with family or friends. This refreshing route allows you to discover the exuberance of nature and the Grand Brûlé forest in just half an hour. However, be careful of tree roots which can, here and there, obstruct the path.

Pay attention ! In the southern winter (dry and cool period, from April to October), the waterfall is often dry. In the southern summer (wet period from October to April), on the other hand, be careful about the risk of slipping, especially after heavy rain !



Be careful, swimming in the pool is not supervised!

The path is lined with guava trees. From May to July, bring containers... regulars bring buckets because the ripe fruit is less mishandled there than in soft bags!
