The beach of Salines is the picture perfect beach postcard and can be found in all Martinique travel guides. There’s a long strip of sand in the shade of coconut trees. We spend a day there to enjoy swimming, coconut sorbet, exploring the mangrove or going for a walk to admire the “Savane des Pétrifications.”
The catamaran is in the midst of green turtles in front of an elegant Creole town. A very beautiful underwater trail allows you to admire the tropical marine fauna.
As its name indicates Grande Anse is a vast and pretty bay. A very nice diving site for snorkelers. Diving clubs on the shore allow you to explore the deepest waters.
Sunday evenings are particularly lively with the famous concerts of the restaurant Ti-sable.
Anse Dufour and Anse Noire
Turtles are common and the corals are worth getting into the water for. The charm of these little coves is indisputable.
We can admire the surrounding vegetation that grows on this dark basalt rock that looks over the Caribbean Sea.
For those who do not want to settle for the Caribbean coast and want to venture on the coast with wilder winds, the mooring spot of small Granada offers a good shelter.
On the other hand, far from the usual cruising routes, it’s calm during the week when there are no local motor boats.
The stopover in
Saint-Pierre is quite different from the clichéd Caribbean cruises. There is no
turquoise water beach shaded by coconut trees.
Nonetheless, we can discover this city which used to be the prefecture of Martinique before the horrific eruption of Mount Pelée. The site is the start of the most beautiful hiking trails on the island!
