Plage de l'Anse Charpentier

Beach in Sainte-Marie
  • Anse Charpentier beach, located between Sainte-Marie and Marigot in Martinique, is a natural wonder on the Atlantic coast and one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The beach stretches for almost 800 metres, revealing fine sand ranging from blond to grey, framed by the mouth of the Charpentier river and the volcanic peak known as "Pain de Sucre".

    The site has a rich history, marked by the presence of the Amerindians and its role in the sugar and rum trade.
    Renowned for its exceptional setting, Anse Charpentier beach is an ideal haven for walks, offering wild landscapes and a peaceful atmosphere. Swimming is prohibited here due to the strong currents and powerful waves, which attract the most experienced surfers, earning it the nickname of "Surfer's Bay". The beach is also the starting point for walks along the Sentier Littoral.

    Not far away, the restaurant Le Point de Vue, an institution of Creole cuisine, offers a gastronomic stopover not to be missed by visitors. This renowned venue is perfect for lunch in breathtaking surroundings.
