The River Trail

The River Trail crosses La Desirade from South to North, starting from the Souffleur beach. This walk allows the discovery of a rich flora like wild orchids, Tetramicra elegans Tolumnia urophylla, cucullata Brassavola, Epidendrum ciliare. While hiking you will also sense the presence of the Bois d’Inde Bastard, Myrcianthes fragrans.

The climb to the plateau offers beautiful views of the South coast, East to Pointe Double and West towards the Souffleur beach. The descent to the North coast is largely inside the forest, in the bed of the River essentially formed by rocky limestone where water flows into a small waterfall.
