This little bay is located on the Southwest Corner of the island and does not see large cruise vessels.
This is a tender port.
Thanks to an average temperature of 79°, Martinique is the island of the “never-ending summer.” Trade winds from the east and northeast provide a steady breeze that constantly refreshes the air. Due to these tropical climate conditions in Martinique, the island is lush with vegetation: lavish tropical forests, groves, savannas, countless species of trees, fruits, plants and flowers, not to mention the mangrove forests.
Due to the Taxi Union demands, there is no public transport from the airport, which means that you can either hire a car or take a taxi. Be warned that taxis operate an extortionate 40% surcharge between 8PM and 6AM as well as on Sundays and public holidays.
Martinique is a dependent territory of France and uses the euro as currency. US dollars are not accepted in shops, but some stores and many restaurants and hotels take credit cards.
French and Creole patois are spoken on the islands; English is known by some inhabitants.
