In water that is only 3 feet deep, there are so many different types of fish, as well as sea urchins and anemones. We were actually staying at the aparthotel on the beach - Oukae - and the snorkeling straight out from there and Ti...More

There's a little confusion here. Anse d'Arlet is the town in the photo with the quaint steeple. Grand Anse is the next cove up. It's pretty, but slightly more commercial. Of course, it's all relative in Martinique where nothing is truly commercial. Basically, all of...More

This beach resort has inviting waters and nice sand. The resort itself has an excellent bakery, butchers, and several nice restaurants some of which are on the beach itself. It feels very French and is quite different from Fort-de-France. Well worth visiting

As it seems many beaches on the south of Martinique are, this was a fairly long, narrow beach. It was decently crowded at the very beginning of high season on a Sunday, so it might get really busy later. The water was great, though there...More

A lot of reviews of the small towns in this area focus on the beaches and activities in the water, but we found that Grand Anse d'Arlet was simply a beautiful little town to stop at. The view of the church from the end of...More

We stopped at Grand Anse while touring Martinique. Our guide pointed out the area for the best snorkeling. The beach isn't very wide but there was ample room for us to leave our shoes, cover ups, etc. After a short swim in perfectly clear water,...More
