Cascade de Grand Galet, Saint-Joseph

#2 of 14 in Things to do in Saint-Joseph
Outdoor Activity · Hidden Gem
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. Start your trip to Saint-Joseph by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
