Anses d'Arlet is located on the west coast of Martinique, near Grande Anse and Petite Anse. These three small fishing villages, lying on the Caribbean Sea between green hills, are some of the most interesting things to see if you visit the island. In particular, Anses d'Arlet is one of the most photographed parts of Martinique because of its picturesque church, the Eglise de Saint-Henri, which is practically in the sea, and its long pier, from which you can admire the 180-degree view of the bay. Outside the church, a plaque commemorates the fallen of the country who died during the First World War ...it was surprising to see that even this small, distant part of the world made a contribution. The village is made up of a handful of colourful houses, a bakery, a couple of grocery shops, a boutique, handicrafts and souvenirs stores, ice cream parlor, a small cinema, and the beautiful white-sand beach.
Bellefontaine is a small fishing village on the west coast of Martinique. It is situated between Le Carbet and Case-Pilote. Only 11 square km, it is the smallest town of the island and is half embedded in a small valley surrounded by cliffs covered by lush tropical vegetation. It has a population of about 1,500, mostly fishermen. Site to see are The "Torgileo" (former boat-shaped restaurant), the church of Saint Pierre aux Liens (from 1962) and the cemetery where the painter Jules Marillac was buried. Do not miss the interesting fish market, with stalls located along the beach and the Caribbean Sea.
