Ten kilometres north of the town of Saint-Pierre, not far from the Pelée mountain, lies Le Prêcheur, a pretty little fishing village by the Caribbean Sea. An old 17th-century bell tower, a remnant of the old Le Prêcheur Church, is a reminder of bygone days. In this picturesque village, where Françoise d'Aubigné, the future Madame de Maintenon, once stayed, you can also admire a beautiful lighthouse standing nearly twelve metres tall, a listed historic monument.
Four kilometres north of the village, not far from the Céron habitation, an old 17th-century sugar plantation now open to visitors, you can enjoy the superb grey sandy beach of Céron Cove, lined by coconut palms and other trees. Offering plenty of shade, it's ideal for a relaxing break, a refreshing dip or a spontaneous picnic. From there, a wonderful hiking trail to Grand'Rivière takes lovers of coastal landscapes to several unspoilt coves on the Caribbean coast, such as Grass Snake Cove (Anse Couleuvre), Greyhound Cove (Anse Lévrier), Sail Cove (Anse à Voile) or Pebble Cove (Anse des Galets).
