What can you expect with Bô La Riviè and its waterfall?

First of all, a warm and friendly welcome by a team present on site! This is also the charm of the Antilles, locals delighted to transmit to you the values and treasures of the Caribbean. 

When you come to "Bô Lariviè", you enter a magnificent site crossed by the Galion River. The site has been arranged so that you can do activities with others such as kayaking, archery, pedal go-karting, petanque or volleyball or even scooter.

The list is longer, but we want to emphasize that each of the activities you can do has been designed to be as quiet and environmentally friendly as possible. 

For those who love hiking, you will not be left out: after a short walk, you can enjoy the coolness of the Galion River at the famous Bô Lariviè waterfall. This waterfall is the widest in Martinique and offers a natural pool whose current offers you a relaxing massage after a good walk or a wild game of volleyball or go-karting.

The small plus of this site? The cultural discovery. On site, you have the possibility to discover kazbe. These camping accommodations are inspired by the Amerindian culture that permeates the island and its origins.

Always respecting the ecosystem, these bamboo dwellings are perfectly integrated into the landscape. Ideal for groups, you can also reserve one for a couple or a family.

A catering option is also available. An additional way to discover the Martinican culture: with its cuisine and its mythical local dishes.
