Plage de Grand Macabou

Beach in Le Vauclin
  • A wild and authentic beach.

    Grand Macabou beach, located in Le Vauclin in Martinique, is a veritable tropical paradise, a deserted beach. Adorned with coconut palms, with its sometimes choppy waters and breathtaking wilderness setting, the site is ideal for a Robinson-style day out, hiking and relaxing, whether in the bright sunshine or in the shade of the coconut palms. It is advisable, however, to beware of falling coconuts, a danger often underestimated in tropical regions.

    Preserved in a wild state by decision of the local authorities, Grand Macabou beach is characterised by its stretch of fine golden sand, bordered by a turquoise sea. This natural landscape, far from the hustle and bustle of tourist beaches, is a haven of peace for visitors. Framed by Pointe Marie-Catherine and a cliff that leads to its little sister, Plage du Petit Macabou, this beach is also overlooked by the Chapelle de la Vierge des Marins, offering an exceptional viewpoint.

    Well-known to walkers on the Trace des Caps, Grand Macabou beach is an ideal starting point for exploring the coastal paths. These paths wind through lush countryside and offer panoramic views of the ocean. It's a unique opportunity to appreciate the wild beauty of Martinique.

    At certain times of the year, the island can suffer from sargasso.
