Named after three nearby islands, Trois-Ilets remains a small town few casual travelers ever get to explore.
Get some cultural insight at La Savane des Esclaves and Musee Departemental de la Martinique. Your inner history buff will appreciate Habitation Clement and St. Louis Cathedral. Explore Trois-Ilets' surroundings by going to Jardin de Balata (in Fort-de-France) and Sainte-Anne (La Pointe Marin & Plage des Salines). It doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Anse Dufour and tour the pleasant surroundings at Anse Noire.
