Pointe du Marin

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. Those wanting to kayak around the marinas here might have some luck using this as a push-off point though.

Located in the heart of Le Marin, Pointe du Marin is on the South East edge of Martinique. You might think about stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. The beach is set in a rather urbanized area, but this does not, in fact, mean beach to be rather congested, the actual beach will be found too congested. Rather, you will generally find plenty of places to set up shop.

How to Access The Beach
Luckily, the area is full of modern roads and it is easy to drive to the beach. City traffic can be confusing though, so make sure to get up to date directions. Generally, however, taking the Highway La Agnes, and taking Rue Victor Schoelcher South will take you to the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.

Pointe du Marin grants an idyllic and tranquil escape, due to the fact that the location that surrounds the beach is not heavily urbanized.
