Plage de l'Anse Azérot

Beach in Sainte-Marie
  • Anse Azérot beach, located in Sainte-Marie in Martinique, is the last accessible beach on the island's north Atlantic coast before reaching Grand Rivière, the island's most northerly point. This beach is appreciated for its wild and picturesque setting, often compared to those on postcards.
    It combines natural beauty, tranquillity and accessibility, making it perfect for those looking to explore a wilder, more authentic side of Martinique.

    Characterised by its sand and pebbles, Anse Azérot lies in a natural environment between Morne Bataillon and Pointe Martineau. Bordered by grape and coconut trees, it offers shady areas ideal for picnics, making it a favourite spot for locals, particularly at weekends. The waters are moderately rough, but can become quite turbulent in heavy swells. As well as the pleasures of the beach, visitors can discover the ruins of the old Père Labat distillery and a lime kiln, historic witnesses along the shoreline.
