Anse Tartane

Anse Tartane is a small beach. However, what it is missing in sand it makes up for in waves. The rough water at this beach has put it on the radar of many local and visiting surfers. Not much else is for the beach, as the rough waves can make swimming tough, and even nappers at the far end of the beach can be hit by a wave.

Situated toward the center of the island of Martinique, 6.9 miles north-northeast of Le Robert, Anse Tartane is on the North East edge of the island, You should consider dropping by even if you are not staying in the immediate vicinity. Do you dream of finding a beach tucked into an untouched part of town? Many visitors seek a beach that isn't packed full of hotel guests; less popular beaches like Anse Tartane are perfect for getting away from it all.

How to Access The Beach
You can reach Anse Tartane by traveling up the aptly named Rue du Surf, right off the Highway D-2.
