- Our guide Pablo took us on his boat for half a day to the Fond blancs, the baignoire de Joséphine, a secluded beach and the Mangroves.
It was absolutely magical as was the incredible knowledge and hospitality he shared. It is well worth investing in this experience!Written January 9, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We had a great time visiting Les Gorges de la Falaise! It was close to our accommodation in Morne Rouge (<15 minutes drive), and easy to find on our offline maps.
We had read previous reviews that said to bring a bathing suit, but we didn't realize that we would ONLY be allowed to wearing bathing suits. And for good reason - we were completely submerged in water at some parts!
As others have explained, you are required to pay 10 euro cash to the attendant at the top of the gorges/beside the parking lot. He verifies that you are wearing waterproof clothes, only have waterproof cameras, and have water shoes (I recommend closed toes, otherwise, you can rent the waterproof sandals for 2 euros). He also holds on to your car keys and supervises the parking lot. He spoke English.
You hike down into the gorge - about 10-15 minutes. The steps were big, and there were handrails (occasionally rusty, but otherwise sturdy). It's not an easy walk down, but not challenging either. At the bottom, we gave our ticket to the attendant to show that we paid. He told us to wait for a guide across the river. Unfortunately, we had to wait for 30+ minutes for a guide, which would have been nice to know. Oh well.
Once the guide arrived, he took us into the actual gorge/river along with a couple other tourists. Do not expect a lot (any) information from your guide - he is there strictly to guide you safely to the waterfall! When the water was deep,there were secure ropes to help you move yourself further along. You are in water, ranging from ankle deep to submerged, the entire time. There are a couple of metal ladders to climb, but they were very secure. It was really gorgeous, and the waterfall at the end was a nice pay-off!
If you're in Martinique's north end and have a spare couple of hours, I would recommend the trip! As others have mentioned, call ahead or ask someone in the know (we asked our hotel manager) if it's open.Written February 8, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- There is a very nice beach - white sand and clear blue water. The view from the pier in front of the church is very nice, iconic for the island. There are very good restaurants along the coast.
I recommend it as one of top 10 town to visit.Written January 4, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- A great walk / hike along the sea, across the vegetation to arrive to an amazing beach. Bring your water and good shoes!Written March 14, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This place has been on my radar for a really long time and it was a dream come true to finally be able to visit it in person. I love rum, ron, rhum but it's the Clement Rhum that I enjoyed the most here in the US and always wanted get a chance to see where it's made.
So in our 10 visits Clement was the only one where we actually needed to pay for the entrance - it's about $30 USD for 2 people, didn't hurt and we thought it was a very fair price, though wanted to emphasize as any other place it was free.
As most distilleries in Martinique (there are some that offer paid tours but in French only) this is a self-guided tour - you walk around the big grounds and follow the maps and the posters - very enjoyable, very relaxing and even my wife who doesn't care for rum/rhum/ron and whom visited by this point about 15 of those with me around Caribbeans was very happy she didn't have to be "forced" to listed to how rhum is made :)
This is place is a rhum lovers Mecca - it is a tribute to rhum and it's culture, the old distillery, the aging cellars/magazines, the walk around - just to give you an idea how much is there to enjoy... is that by the time we finished the self tour and arrived to sample rhums I did not care for it :) yes I still tried a few, but the rhum I so dearly enjoyed back home in US, simply did not matter as my heart was full with joy and satisfaction from touring the grounds! Of course I still sampled a few of them and took home with me some other ones to sip while on the island but what I am trying to say is that even if you don't drink rhum/rum/ron and don't care for this "poison" this place will have plenty to offer for you!
TIP: make sure to wear comfortable shoes and take some water with you - you will spend a lot of time here, probably the most out of all 10 distilleries we visited - it's not that the grounds are tough to walk, it's just a lot of walking as things are spread apart and then there is also a big nice park that we didn't have anything left in the tank to see and I think it's something worth experiencing as well
TIP: also, there is no restaurant on the spot or walking distance so considering you will spend a lot of time here either plan to bring some food and leave it in the car so you can grab a bite after or alternatively once you finish you will end up going to the nearby Le Francois, about 5 to 10 minutes driving north, and have a bite thereWritten November 26, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This really unique. People can go on the ocean and they don't have to swim. Once at the special place named 'La Baignoire de Josephine", The floor is stable and anyone can walk anywhere.
People like to walk on that, because it is different and attractive!
A must see!Written September 22, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Fabulous beach, though it is a bit small. It has really good bathroom and changing facilities, which is such a rarity. One area is good for snorkelling with varieties of fish. Sea turtles hang out here as well and that was really the highlight for us. A crowd of snorkelers was out looking around, and three turtles swam through, down to the bottom to feed, up to the top for air and back down again. One of the three was at least a metre long (shell length). Fabulous day!
It tends to fill up quickly, and parking is on the side of the road, so for a successful day, plan on getting there no later than 8:30 in the morning, spend a few hours and head out before it gets too crowded.Written February 29, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- At first a beautiful drive takes you to An Mao. Just when you think you took the wrong way you find the sign that will lead the rest of the way (by foot). Pierre-Yves welcomes you and guides you through his chemin des ancêtres. It is an ode to his ancestors, former slaves from Africa. During the tour he provides you with interesting historical facts, he shares his wide knowledge of plants and their medicinal purposes and tells unforgettable stories about growing up on this beautiful spot. In Dutch we would say: je komt Ogen en oren te kort.
At the end of the tour Pierre-Yves is in your heart forever.Written May 11, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We were on a shore trip from our cruise. The destination was this beach.. After seeing the ride there, I recommend you take a trip with a guide, due the the roads. It is windy, up and down with many turn offs. with this beach as our destination. It was worth the trip. A nice long curved beach with plenty of shade,beach and a bar and some snack shops. The water is calm and good for children. It was Sunday and not crowded.m We wee there about 3 hours. Martinique beautiful island with lot of green trees, plants and crops of bananas and sugar cane. They are proud of their rum and say the bet. Of course all the island make this their claim! I recommend it ia trip of this kind if yo9u go there.Written April 10, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Quiet (unless the locals are having a party, something you should have witnessed) beautiful beach, great place to swim, crystal clear water.Written October 19, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We had seen the Diamond rock first from the Salines Beach, then from our lunch at Chill (cool restaurant, see separate review) on the way here, but it's not until we actually got to the official vista point that we noticed the true size and full beauty of this rock.
Call it diamond, dirt, whatever - it is impressive! Again the pictures I took from the vista point don't do do justice as with the human eye the rock itself appears much much bigger, and that is from the distance! I know there are tours/boat trips to witness it from literally right there but for those who stay on the mainland this vista point is the best shot - I requested TripAdvisor to adjust its location to match Google Maps Point de Vue Rocher du Diamant (Diamond Rock Vista Point) so if they don't simply check that name on the Google Maps and you will find yourself where we took these pictures.
There is room to park your car and then once you take stairs down couple boards with facts/history, sadly only in French so we weren't able to read it but some pictures were pretty self explanatory.
I say this is an absolute must while on Martinique and especially in this area of the island.
TIP: it's literally about 5 minutes west of the Memorial Cap - another must see spot in MartiniqueWritten November 28, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Fort de France in Martinique was our first port of call on our recent Caribbean cruise. We'd previously visited Fort de France which is a very pleasant town but this time we decided to find a beach. Aparently the best option is to take the ferry to Anse Mitan. We walked from the cruise terminal to the ferry departure point which took about 20 minutes and there is a small office where you can purchase the ferry tickets. From memory, I think the tickets cost 7 euro each. The ferry trip takes about 25 minutes and the ferry arrives right at the small pier at the beach. The beach is a decent size, quite undeveloped, and was fairly quiet on the day we visited. There are plenty of small bar / restaurants along the beach and the whole vibe is relaxed and low key.Written March 9, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Amazing beach but my family took the trail to get to Anse Noire (roughly 40mn). The house at the end of the trail when you get to Anse Noire has two aggressive and unleashed dogs that started running and chasing my sister-in-law with my 1 y/o niece and I. I ended up falling in the ground and hurting myself while trying to run away from the dogs my husband grabbed a stick to chase them away.Written December 26, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We love to visit tropical Caribbean gardens and had already seen Balata. M. Babo's is very different but equally amazing. He has crafted a kaleidoscope of colour on his own over the last 18 years. The results are astonishing. It is tricky to find the gardens but well worth the drive. He was delighted to share his pride in his garden with us. He does not speak English but don't let that put you off.Written February 27, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
