Sainte-Luce

— 6 nights
The coastal town of Sainte-Luce has a pleasing aesthetic, with fishing boats bobbing in the bay and charming, squat buildings dotted on the hill that rises up from the coast.
La Savane des Esclaves and Habitation Clement will appeal to history buffs. Appreciate the collections at Musee de la Pagerie and House of Sugar (Maison de la Canne). Change things up with these side-trips from Sainte-Luce: Sainte-Anne (La Pointe Marin, Ilet Chevalier, &more) and Les Anses d'Arlet (Anse Dufour, Anse Noire, &more). There's still lots to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Parfums des iles, explore the striking landscape at Diamond Rock, engage your brain at Le Musee de la Mer, and get up close to creatures of the deep with Excursions et Loisirs en Martinique.

Arrondissement of Saint-Pierre travel guide

4.1
Zoos · Waterfalls · Distilleries
During the colonial era, Arrondissement of Saint-Pierre contained Martinique's cultural capital, known locally as the "Paris of the Caribbean." Today, the town of Saint-Pierre serves as a pleasant stop for visitors exploring the island that remains France's outpost in this part of the world. Overlooked by a volcano, which erupted in 1902 and destroyed much of its central district, the town boasts a small volcanology museum and some restored colonial-era buildings. Beyond this thriving little town, tours of Arrondissement of Saint-Pierre reveal a rugged landscape where time seems frozen and the slow pace of life continues undisturbed.
