The best Beaches of Belize… Goff’s Caye

It sits right on the edge of the Belize Barrier Reef with waters to the south and east being only 0.6 to 3 metres deep. Goff’s Caye is registered as an archaeological site due to its Colonial era settlement. During the Colonial times, the island served as a fishing camp, trade center and cemetery. Among those interred in the cemetery are a number of crew members from HMS Blossom, who died of Yellow Fever during a visit to the colony in August 1830.

Trou de Fer, Reunion

The Trou de Fer is a canyon on Reunion Island, off the coast of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. The primary river flowing through the gorge, which is up to 1,000 feet deep, is the Bras de Caverne River, which is a tributary of the Riviere du Mat. The canyon has two distinct parts; a large crater, which is fed by six prominent waterfalls, and a narrow slot canyon at its outlet, which constitutes most of the canyon’s length. The Bras de Caverne River’s headwaters are in a cirque high on the mountainside abutting the canyon wall, and directly after that, it drops over a waterfall about 700 feet high. This drop is usually dry or has very little water, but between that and the next, 600-foot  drop, springs feed the river, which drops over this then drops over a final 1,000-foot  undercut cliff into the Trou de Fer in a narrow plume of water.
