Trois Ilets is not the type of destination one chooses when they are looking for a big city filled with museums and cultural attractions.  This is the spot you go to get away from it all – without sacrificing the modern amenities that you've become accustomed to.  This town's main attractions revolve around the beaches with a little market-style shopping thrown in for good measure. 

Beaches

Anse Mitan

You will find a large number of beaches to enjoy, though all of them are found nearby. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, if some of the people in your group enjoy this relaxing pastime. Just click on each beach name for more information concerning that specific beach.

One beach where snorkeling is an option is Anse Mitan. The golden beaches of Anse Mitan feature clear but deep water. The shore is spotted with palm trees, which conceal a few small bistros.

Another top pick for visitors who enjoy snorkeling is Pointe du Bout. There's plenty to do and see both in and out of the water at Pointe du Bout. Watch the boats come in to dock or take in the local shops.

Anse-a-l'Ane: Perfect for a picnic, Anse-a-l'Ane beach offers tables for guests to stop for a snack along these shores. A nearby shell museum and a bar in the neighboring Le Calalou Hotel are also prime attractions.

Fortunately, you will find plenty of other beaches nearby. If you're interested, you can learn more here.

Landmark Attractions

An interesting landmark worth visiting is La Savane des Esclaves. It is located in the heart of Trois Ilets. The property is open from 9:00 a.m. to noon and 2:00 to 5:30 p.m.

Another landmark worth visiting is Musee Departemental de la Martinique. It is found 5.1 mi. North-Northwest of central Trois Ilets. A trip to the Departmental Museum of Archeology and Prehistory allows visitors to learn about the island of Martinique before colonization. The private collection amassed via archeological excavations paints the most accurate picture available about the geological evolution of Martinique.

Schoelcher Library: What makes this library so special is that it was built in 1889 and France, then shipped to the island piece by piece.
