Bassin Bleu haiti

Located in the mountains northwest of Jacmel, Bassin Bleu (or blue pool) is a series of hidden waterfalls and basins, three mineral-rich (cobalt, to be specific) pools linked by waterfalls, some of the most beautiful natural swimming pools in Haiti.


Tours, guides and transportation can be found in Jacmel. A small truck will take you up to the mountains, and from there a small hike awaits for you.

The three pools are Bassin Clair, Bassin Bleu and Bassin Palmiste. The three pools offer cool, pristinas and bright blue waters, one of the most beautiful natural wonders of Haiti.

Of the three, Bassin Clair is the most popular one, with a 32 feet (10 mt) height waterfall and turquoise waters.

Make sure that you don’t go in rainy season, with the amount of waterfall might fill the pools with mud and change its colors.
