Swimming in Rochester Falls

Rochest

 

About 15 minutes by car towards Souillac and signed off main road to left before reaching bus station on corner. The Falls are in sugar fields so drive slowly on untarred but well seen tracks. Follow rustic signage for less than 2 km. Locals may be jumping off the basalt pillars making up the falls but the pool at the bottom is deep enough to swim. Very refreshing on a hot day.
