Grand Galet waterfall, the freshwater beauty of the intense island
The Grand Galet waterfall also called Langevin waterfall, consisting of multiple waterfalls is the most famous and best known of the Reunion Island. Established in the town of Saint-Joseph in the south of the island not far from Piton de la Fournaise, it is one of Reunion's favorite picnic spots.
The Grand Galet waterfall belongs to the Langevin river which can be skirted for about ten kilometers via a road. You will have the opportunity to observe the different varieties of fruit trees where lychees, mangoes or even oranges grow. And with a little luck, you will come across the path of the endemic species Manapany green lizard of the intense island.
Take the opportunity to introduce yourself to canyoning, the course is suitable for both beginners and children. For the more experienced, you have the option of abseiling the Langevin waterfall.
Now that you are at the edge of the Langevin river, it would be a shame not to take advantage of its other waterfalls. Less spectacular, but just as fascinating, you will fall 5 km further on the Trou Noir waterfall and at the end of the river on the Jacqueline waterfall.
Freshwater fishing enthusiast, it's your lucky day! 300 meters from the Grand Galet waterfall, the Langevin Grande Cascade fish park organizes rainbow trout fishing parties where the necessary rods and equipment are provided. You can leave with the fruit of your fishing.
