ANSE COULEUVRE, ANSE CERON AND THEIR ROCK:

Martinique snorkeling Anse couleuvre

The stunning Anse Céron and Anse Couleuvre are striking beaches away from the crowds in the north-west, in one of the most untouched regions of the island, surrounded by striking vegetation and edged with black volcanic sand! It’s the same underwater. The sea beds are beautiful and our little tropical fish live a dream life there.

Further out to sea, a few hundred meters from the coasts (800m), a small uninhabited volcanic dome rises from the sea. It’s part of the Prêcheur marine reserve, and it’s called the La Perle islet. It’s pretty likely you'll meet sea turtles underwater, as well as impressive shoals of fish. A treat for the eyes!
