Pointe Du Bout

Directly across the city of Fort-de-France, on the other side of the bay of the same name, lies Pointe Du Bout, Martinique's most popular resort area. The streets are lined with quaint boutiques, breezy cafes and great restaurants, prompting many to hop on the regular ferries departing from the Fort-de-France Marina in search of entertainment, shopping and fun in the sun.

Do & See

The picturesque seaside city of Fort-de-France offers plenty in the way of sights and attractions, including beautiful historical buildings, an imposing fort and ample walkability, but it is best used as a home-base for exploring the natural surroundings of the island of Martinique. Laze at idyllic beaches from coast to coast, hike up the commanding Mount Pelée, and marvel at the lush, tropical beauty of the island. The more historically-minded can check out the Musée de la Pagerie or contemplate the solemn Anse Cafard Slave Memorial, a sobering reminder or the country's and region's tumultuous past.
