Trois-Ilets

Trois-Ilets ©
Named after three nearby islands, Trois-Ilets remains a small town few casual travelers ever get to explore.
Bring the kids along to Anse-a-l'Ane and Le Musee de la Mer. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Corail Club Caraibes and Ilet Chevalier. Get out of town with these interesting Trois-Ilets side-trips: Le Marin (An Mao The Legacy of Ancestors & Le Morne Gommier), Fort-de-France (Distillerie la Favorite, St. Louis Cathedral, &more) and Sainte-Anne (Etang des Salines, Scuba & Snorkeling, &more). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at La Savane des Esclaves, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Henry Catholic Church, steep yourself in history at Habitation Clement, and kick back and relax at Petit Anse.
