Martinique's third biggest city in terms of population, located on the island's Atlantic coast, Le Robert is famous for its heavenly islets and white sandbanks (Fonds Blancs). But before taking to the sea to visit the islands in the bay for which the area is so popular, why not pay a visit to the town centre of Le Robert. Not only will you be able to admire a charming blue and white church dedicated to St Rose of Lima, you can also enjoy the lively atmosphere every morning at the covered market.
Ideal for a day out with family and friends, a catamaran, kayak or skiff trip to the famous islets is sure to delight anyone who enjoys swimming and marine landscapes. Among the bay's ten islets, you can of course admire the vast Chancel islet, where you can see the remains of an old sugar plantation. It's also remarkable for being home to a large colony of Lesser Antillean iguanas. During your sea voyage, you can also see the Madame islet, a real gem with its white sandbanks and turquoise waters, ideal for swimming and exploring the underwater scenery. Other islets include the Little Martinique islet (Ilet Petite Martinique), Rats Islet (Ilet aux Rats) and Water Islet (Ilet à Eau). A great day out to look forward to!
