The beaches of Martinique are quite diverse.  Some have black sands, some have white; some allow nudity, and others are secluded and natural.  In Fort de France you'll find the shores are mostly comprised of white sands and calm waters.  Luckily, all of the beaches in this town are public, even those backed by resorts, so you can visit them all and for free.
