The hike to the rim of the crater from Aileron is moderate. The trail up is generally in good condition and heavily trafficked. There are a few scrambles and it’s muddy in places so wear hiking boots or good shoes. The rim walk going counterclockwise starts off easy then turns moderate as you approach the northern end. If you carry on all the way around, the second half is hard! Long vertical scrambles on wet rocks, dense mist and strong winds most days. On the second half you’re hiking into the caldera and it’s amazing. Read the official guidebooks and come prepared. Wear proper clothes, hiking boots, layers and a raincoat. Bring water, food and a compass. You don’t need a guide, but a knowledgeable one will enhance your experience. Note: the elevation gain for this hike is incorrect. The hike from Aileron with the caldera loop (without the summit) was around 2,500 ft (762 metres) in gain.Show more

This was a gorgeous hike with beautiful views along the rugged Atlantic coast. You can safely drive on the unpaved road to Chateau Duboc in a rental car (you don't need 4WD). There are some steep grades (both up and down), as well as loose rock, and even large rocks to step around and over. It is well marked (mostly), but there are a few areas across rocky seashore that you need to keep your eyes peeled for the ongoing path at a distance, or the white within blue circles. There is a 5 euro per person charge, and this includes a nice audiotour (in English and French) describing various sites in the plantation. You could easily spend an hour here.Show more

This trail passes an old cocoa farm from the 17th century that later grew coffee, food, cane. Two distilleries also produced rum, essential oils and lemon juice for export. Today the crops and buildings are abandoned. Hike by them on your way to the turquoise waters of the Anse Couleuvre beach. Show more
