We made a trip to Le Diamant to see it from the shore and discovered an awesome little town with excellent restaurant near the pier but for Diamond Rock itself it was a boat ride that made its whole glory visible to us. As the boat ride to Diamond rock comes usually with snorkeling etc I recommend you took a... More

In and of itself, this is just a rock sticking out of the ocean when viewed from land as we did. However, I love history that's one reason I travel so much. Diamond Rock has a shocking story. It is hard to imagine ( from land anyway) that people could have stayed on that rock, it doesn't look as if... More

It was a great photo op, and all, but Martinique, while being described as "like Paris" was nothing like it. We did not feel safe here and there were very few souvenir shops. I expected to have French cuisine available, but maybe because we took a cruise here? We did hire a driver who took us the Diamond Rock, and... More

We viewed this Rock from L'Anse Canard. You can, however, take a boat out to the actual rock on the boating trip Scheherazade. We sadly did not have enough time to do this. It is an easy 1/2 day trip from Trois Islets harbor to the rock. We plan to go back and do the 1/2 day journey out to... More

We spent a few hours here when driving around the island. Definitely worth the drive, very nice beach and view, not crowded at all as we thought before going there. Waves are a bit rough so maybe not for the younger children. Town seemed nice as well as the location on the hotels across the road from the beach.

Imposing and impressive landmark with shocking historical event--a British slave trader shipwrecked here in the early 1800's.

Diamond Rock offers a nice setting on a attractive coast. Worth a stop when touring around. We did not visit the rock itself.

At first I was a little wary of traveling to go see a rock but the drive down was great, the food was great, the views were even more awesome. I recommend going to the rock then the caffard memorial and then hit the beach with a panini and beer in hand.
