Le Robert

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Martinique

It is in a paradise bay with turquoise water that Le Robert installed the houses of his city. Located on the Atlantic Ocean, the municipality has a barrier of coral, a deep sea and above all a cordon of islands, called islets, which protects its waters from the tumults of the ocean and the wind, sometimes violent. Le Robert has everything to please and particularly a privileged location on the island of Martinique. The islets are private, but some are visitable and this is where all the charm of the town resides. Indeed, it is on the islets that are the beaches of fine sand and not in edge of coast of the city.

The commune was born in 1694 under the impulse of Father Labat. If history does not say more, it emphasizes the resistance of the inhabitants. In fact, during the Second World War, the city was taken by the Germans. The famine began following the disruption of trade with the continent. But the inhabitants are ingenious and manufacture themselves everything they need. Finally, they managed to expel the Germans in June 1943 and regained their freedom.

Things to see and do

The great attraction of the town is undoubtedly its magnificent bay and the islets that surround it. Numerous nautical activities are proposed. Underwater first with scuba diving which is highly prized in place because of its beautiful white backgrounds and the exceptional wealth of exotic fish varieties that occupy the places. On the water then, the kayak holds a good place. Guests can rent kayaks to explore the islets. A journey that requires a certain physical condition! The less athletic can go there by boat without a license, also available for hire. You can discover the islets alone or in organized mini-cruise. The most famous are the Ilet Chancel where you can see the last iguanas of the Lesser Antilles, the islet of Madame renowned for its beaches and its white bottoms and the islet Loup-Garou which happens to be a Sandbank dotted with coconut palms.

The city enjoys an exceptional natural environment and you will also have the opportunity to go hiking inland to discover the local flora and fauna as in the wood Pothau. It is 268 hectares of forest bordering the coast with exceptional views.

Among the monuments to see absolutely, one can quote the fountain of the seaside, a local curiosity, but also the town hall built in 1933 and architecture inspired by the nineteenth century. The Saint-Joseph chapel of Pontaléry, originally built in 1802, was destroyed and rebuilt around 1895. The Sainte-Rose church in Lima is dedicated to the patron saint of the city. Finally, the religious heritage ends with the Sainte-Jeanne-d'Arc church of Vert-Pré built in 1934. Also worth seeing are the sugar houses dating from the 19th century and the lime kiln.
