How long does it take to get to St. Pierre from FDF?

Trying to plan a day trip to Martinique. Would like to see FDF and shop of course:) would also like to see St. Pierre. The map indicates it is 11 miles as the crow flies from FDF to St. Pierre. How long does it take to travel and what is the best way to get there? Can we rent a taxi to show us the sights and get us back to FDF to catch our boat?

Any suggestions on an itinerary and best way to see? Thanks!!! Merci!!!!

Hi there,

Yes rent a cab I'd say. Roads are European-quality, far above normal Caribbean quality; even with all the mountenaous twists & turns not more than an hour, assuming no rush hour traffic jams in FDF town!

All the best,

How long would a taxi from Trois Isles to FDF take and what would it cost? It would be on a Sunday and there is a surcharge I think). The vedettes don't run on Sunday and we need to go to FDF on that day.

Took us about 40 mins on a weekday afternoon (FDF town to Trois-Islets, airport is closerby), and a whopping 75 euro. Hope for you that was an unfair price and that it can be cheaper, but indeed on Sunday you probably have a surcharge; and it's quite a detour around the bay...

All the best,

Trois Ilets marina has a few places doing it (and also e.g. Dolphin watching). Would not know any in FDF town but likely they also have some option...

All the best,
