Marvel at the Langevin waterfall from below

One of the most memorable and imposing waterfalls of Réunion, offering hiking and wild swimming.

Located in the south of Réunion along the Langevin River, which flows from north to south before emptying into the Indian Ocean, the Langevin Waterfall, also called the "Grand Galet", is probably one of the most beautiful and unmissable waterfalls on the island.

The banks of the river Langevin are the perfect spot for a traditional picnic, with the surging crystal-clear water making for a unique and stunning backdrop. For lovers of aquatic landscapes, going down from the Langevin Waterfall, you will come across its sister, the Trou Noir, which is also worth a visit: swimming is refreshing and easily accessible. Directions: at the exit of St. Joseph, continue on the road to the village of "Langevin" and then turn left at the large metal gate. The route then follows the river by a steep, winding road up to the waterfall.

On the way you will find many pineapple, banana and litchi tree plantations.
