A key destination in Martinique, the charming seaside resort of Sainte-Anne at the far south of the island is known for its heavenly beaches, which are very popular with sunbathers. It also has the most beaches of any municipality of Martinique! Plenty for sun-seekers to enjoy… You can admire most of them on the famous coastal hike of the Capes Trail, which goes through the area, for instance the famous picture postcard beach of Salines. Not far from this popular spot with holidaymakers and locals, nature-lovers can admire some remarkable protected sites like the Petrification Savannah, one of the oldest areas in Martinique, or the Salines pond, a sanctuary for many migrant birds.
While Sainte-Anne's beautiful beaches attract many visitors, its fishing village full of colourful houses also appeals with its picturesque charm. On a walk around the area, you'll enjoy seeing the pleasant seafront dotted with bungalows, bars and restaurants, a typical market full of colours and flavours that takes place every morning, and a pretty church next to a charming, shaded town square, an ideal place for a stroll. Behind the church, you can climb up to the calvary of Our Lady of La Salette, an important place of pilgrimage where you can enjoy superb views of the bay!
