PELÉE MOUNTAIN

Fascinating and intimidating, Pelée Mountain is a unique natural site in many respects. To begin with, its history makes it one of the most frightful volcanoes in the world... But never fear ! Its seismic activity is constantly monitored at the Morne Cadet Observatory, which houses one of the world's biggest seismographs.

With its peak nearly 4600 feet above sea level, Pelée Mountain proudly looks out over the Caribbean Sea. An integral part of your Martinique vacation, it delights both adventurers and lovers of nature and volcanology.

THE TOMBOLO

Rising up out of the Atlantic Ocean, Sainte-Marie islet is attached to Petit-Anse beach by a curious natural feature called the Tombolo.

When the Tombolo is open, you can cross over the water on foot to reach the islet. There you will find an arid, almost moonlike landscape.

Note : Remember, there is no swimming allowed during your Tombolo experience. Swimming in the area is unsupervised and very dangerous. Be sure to cross only when the Tombolo is exposed, and be very careful even at low tide.

THE BONUS : On a clear and calm day you can see our neighboring island, Dominica, from the top of Sainte-Marie islet.

TRAPÈZE BATH

It's THE spot for taking magnificent photos of your Martinique vacation ! The Trapeze Bath provides one of the most remarkable, whitest backdrops on Martinique's Atlantic coastline. So close your eyes and dive on in to its shallow waters, which never drop below 78°F ! Located in the heart of Robert Bay, between Chancel islet and La Grotte islet, The Trapeze Bath is accessible only by sea… As you get closer, the water starts to change color completely, making way for striking shades of blue, from dark blue to turquoise and emerald. 

Did you know ?

Sandy areas under shallow waters next to an islet or a coral reef are called "fonds blancs."

How do you get there ?

You can get to this natural swimming pool by taking a comfortable ride on a catamaran or small boat, or go by kayak from the town of Robert.
