Swim in the cool waters underneath Cascade aux Ecrevisses. The waterfall itself is pleasant, but small and not particularly noteworthy. However, the pool below is rarely crowded, and swimming in the cool waters amid the sights and sounds of the rainforest can be a surreal experience. If you're looking for an adrenaline rush, you can jump off the nearby rock faces into the pool, but watch your step on the slippery rocks. After your swim, follow a nearby footpath to reach a quiet picnic area next to the river, where you can dry off and relax.

Nice little waterfall. It is a quite popular place for visitors. It is very easy reachable from the car parking.
It is an easy access and nice waterfall which is why it is popular. However, you should be able to find a little bit quite spot down the stream if that’s what you want. The main water bath it self is very nice and refreshing! It has fish swimming around. Water shoes is not necessary but if you have one I am sure it will make it even easier to walk around. FYI, in the main bath, it is only the very center close to the water fall is very deep.
