Discover The Door of Hell The islands of Guadeloupe

28 miles away from Pointe-à-Pitre, the show is in the nature. The Door of Hell, a clear water lane dug by waves between two black high cliffs, serves as a place for a clear-water lagoon. Swimming is widely authorised. After a 15-min walk by the cliff located east of the Door, you will reach the Hole of Madame Coco, a cave where this dam would have once disappeared.

    Porte de l'Enfer or 'Hell's Gate' may just as well be called 'Gateway to Paradise'.

    The crystal clear waters here look great for a swim but getting down to the sea is rather tricky.

    Porte de l'Enfer is edged with sheer cliffs where violent waves come crashing against the rocks.
