Tatou Creek

This creek is located on the edge of the Paul Isnard track (15km of track to get to the cove). It is equipped with 3 picnic huts. Perfect place for relaxation and swimming in the heart of the forest. Be vigilant in the rainy season, the track may be impassable.

Cascades Creek and Crevettes Creek

Cascades Creek is located about twenty kilometers from Saint-Laurent du Maroni. 15km after the Apatou intersection, the cove will be on the left. Unmissable because of the many fitted out carbets, it is the ideal place for relaxation, picnics and swimming with the family. 100 m upstream, Crevettes Cove is located in a strip of forest

Rouge Creek

Situé sur la route de Mana PK8.5, elle se trouve  à proximité du gîte nature crique rouge et de l'ADNG. Que vous dormiez ou non au gîte, diverses activités s'offrent à vous, comme le kayak, le paddle ou encore la pêche. Contactez le gîte nature au (+594) 694 94 11 10 ou à gitecriquerouge@gmail.com pour plus d'informations.

Île aux Lépreux

A 5 min de pirogue depuis Saint-Laurent, sur cette île étaient isolés autrefois les bagnards atteints de la lèpre. Aujourd’hui, ce site est idéal pour pique-niquer sous un carbet et passer une journée de farniente.

Chutes Voltaire

Avec un dénivelé de 35 mètres sur une distance de 200 mètres, les Chutes Voltaire sont parmi les plus belles cascades de Guyane. 4x4 fortement recommandé pour s’y rendre! Depuis 2019, un arrêté municipal interdit l'accès au site du public en raison de l'état du sentier. Toutefois des prestataires comme Nature de Guyane propose des sorties à l'inselberg des Chutes Voltaire en empruntant leur propre sentier.


Far from being a calm river, the Maroni benefits from winds and currents that make it ideal for various water activities: canoeing and kayaking, windsurfing, group dinghy sailing, fishing, sailboat trips, etc.

There are plenty of ways to enjoy the water!
