Gueule Grand Gouffre
Marie-Galante Island has a stunning and diversified scenery, Gueule Grand Gouffre for instance is one of the most original natural site on the island.
Mind-blowing natural site
Gueule Grand Gouffre is an astonishing open-air chasm that lets the sea comes out from its depths. Located in the North side of Marie-Galante Island in Saint Louis Township, Gueule Grand Gouffre is a natural arch that the swell has shaped in the limestone. Thrill-seekers will be delighted to see the waves crashing against the eroded rocks.
Reaching the location
The spot is easily accessible through a steep path. However, for safety reasons visitors must stay 2 metres far away from the cliff. That is the reason why there is a wooden barrier to ensure the public protection as the abyss is vertiginous.
Don’t miss out this beautiful panorama when visiting Marie-Galante Island. The darkness of the chasm contrasting with the turquoise-blue waters makes it really impressive. Gueule Grand Gouffre is another proof that Mother Nature will never stop to amaze us.
