One of the main sights in[poi = 119164] Le Carbet [/ poi] is its bay, surrounded by lush greenery at the foot of [poi = 120146] Mount Pelée [/ poi]. The city has a long sandy black-sand beach and the warm, blue waters of the Caribbean. The shore is covered by palm trees under which the local fishermen prepare their nets in the shade. Le Carbet is an ideal place for diving, since the shallow waters hold a sunken galleon.
This is the beach of the small town of Diamond, with its famous rock. This beach is very beautiful: long, wide and with a magnificent view on the rock and Morne Larcher (which also evokes the curves of a woman), but it's very hectic. Not recommended for small children as the waves are very strong and break hard. It is perfect for making sandcastles though!
Although the popular tourist beaches are in the southern part of the island of Martinique (especially Pointe du Bout and Le Trois-lets), the capital has a small beach that's not too crowded. It lies at the foot of Fort San Luis, at one of the ends of the Malecón, from which you can access it directly. It is not very large, but it has fine, golden sand, washed by the clear blue waters of the Caribbean. It has a row of palm trees offering you the perfect spot to relax in the shade.
Who says there are few beaches in Martinique? This road 4 km long with a road toll of 2,5euros since it is a private agricultural property. However the road is beautiful with a very nice, quiet, shady beach, at the end... Furthermore, the path leading to the beach is a pond with real crabs, mini-crabs, ... It's great fun for kids!
Martinique in the sun, the heat, with the turquoise sea, the beautiful small island with a boat. On the beach of Anse lagoon, you can see the turtles. It is a beautiful beach, where the water has an incredible colour. Nearby are some restaurants, serving seafood, and using shells as plates.
The city of Saint Pierre is washed by the Caribbean sea and has a beach area located in the lower area of the city, with direct access from the Malecón. It isn't a beach frequented by tourists, and that is good as is found in the southern part of the island, but rather by local people. The sandy beach is fine sand although dark, due to the presence of the volcano, still active, the Mount Pelée. Nor does it have amenities or tourist services, only a small port from which are excursions in tourist boats to dive or glass bottom boats.
