What's Located Around Cap Macabou

Nearby Beaches

Some people's favorite sights to see in all of Martinique are the beautiful stretches of shoreline. You should be able to have your pick of nearby beaches.

Each of the access points adorning the coast of Martinique have their own unique features; the qualities and amenities associated with each can play an important part in how much you enjoy your time on the sand. The two closest beaches to Cap Macabou are Grand Macabou and Pointe du Marin.

Grand Macabou is probably the most convenient option to visit near these accommodations. Keep in mind that you can find this beach a mile to the south of this property, so you will have unlimited opportunities to enjoy the sun and the shore. A natural beach hidden at the end of a forest, Grand Macabou grants visitors a quiet and private experience as they pick a place on this large arching beach. With not much nearby, you can be sure that you will be one of the few on the beach.

Another location you might enjoy is Pointe du Marin where you'll find plenty of people. The small Pointe du Marin is more of a sightseer's beach than a swimming one. With a rapid drop-off and heavy maritime traffic, this beach is better suited for sitting on the sand and watching the boats than going for a dip. You'll find this one a short cab trip away.
