Enjoy water activities or sunbathe on sandy white beach. There's plenty of room for everyone to stretch out. There's much more to do now the area has developed into a resort beach.

Positioned in the vicinity of Diamant, 1.5 miles west-southwest of downtown Diamant, Diamond Beach is on the South edge of Martinique. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying nearby. While Martinique has beaches that are more secluded than Diamond Beach, it has the right combination of charm and personality to attract beachgoers.

Amenities and Ambiance

Diamond Beach is Martinique's longest beach at over six miles long. The sand and surf vary along the beach, but palms are ever-present to provide respite from the sun. Just off the coast of Diamond Beach, visitors can glimpse the uninhabited island of Diamond Rock.

There is also a concession stand available. Depending on the season and time of day, you may also be able to get lunch from one of the mobile vendors who are typically found at this location.

Perhaps the most convenient amenity here: picnic tables.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside. Diamond Beach is a resort area, but there's enough room to accommodate everyone without getting overcrowded. The beach is mainly populated by tourists.

Another location you might enjoy is Les Salines, which is in a pretty active location. It is located 11 and a half miles to the east-southeast.
