Discover The Door of Hell

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.

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.
