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. 

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will discover a large selection of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some of the beaches, if some members of your party enjoy this relaxing pastime. You can click on the name of each beach to get additional information concerning that beach.

Pointe du Bout

Plage de l'Anse Madame: The "in town" beach, Plage de l'Anse Madame remains calm with waters and sand of good quality despite its popularity.

A second location that beach-goers can consider is Pointe du Bout. There's plenty to do and see both in and out of the water at Pointe du Bout. Watch the boats come in to dock or take in the local shops.

Anse Mitan: Swimming and snorkeling are available at Anse Mitan, but beware of the deep water. The golden beaches are perfect for sunbathing, however.
