Plage de Cosmy

A narrow strip of sand with a view of the islet of St. Aubin, Plade de Cosmy is a great spot to relax for a day and maybe get in a bit of snorkeling.

Positioned on the island of Martinique, 1.4 miles north of Trinite, Plage de Cosmy is on the East coast of the island, You should consider dropping by whether or not you are staying particularly close by. Even if you love being in the middle of all the action, there are some perks to visiting a beach that isn't lined with high-rise hotels; beautiful but out-of-the-way beaches like Plage de Cosmy are usually more relaxing than those overrun with fellow travelers.

How to Access The Beach
To get to the beach, go up through the main part of the city to the north, then take the small road that follows the coast. You'll find the beach after a few fishermen stalls with parking not far from the shore.

Amenities and Ambiance

Swimming and snorkeling at this beach is nice because the waters are calm, but the white sand lined by coconut palms are also a beauty to behold despite the small amount of land that the beach covers. The beach can get busy on weekends, but during the week it is nice and calm.

Please note that public restrooms are not available.

If you find that you go for sunny days which offer visitors a calm experience, then you should enjoy Plage de Cosmy; it is found within a more natural section of Martinique.
