Les Anses d'Arlet

Commune of sinners in the south-west of Martinique, Les Anses d'Arlet have lost none of their authentic Creole. This charming town, well preserved from excessive tourism, boasts a lovely white sandy beach that will delight yachtsmen at anchor in the bay.

"Arlet" et son frè

"Arlet" and his brother "Pilote", who left his name to the village of Case Pilote, were Caribbean leaders who negotiated the partition of the island with the first settlers. They left their name in the neighborhood where a parish was erected by the Jesuits.
The Anses d'Arlet are divided into three distinct spaces.

In the center, old creole wooden houses compose the village and participate in the calm of the town facing the beach. This one is besides very pleasant not very frequented. The sand is white and the sea turquoise ... A few meters from the edge, an emerging rock shelters a host of small tricolor fishes, ideal for swimmers with mask and snorkel!
To the north, in the direction of Trois Rivières, Grande Anse has a long and beautiful beach of golden sand lined with coconut palms and small stalls. It is one of the popular beaches of the island where the Martiniquais meet weekend with family.
To the south towards Diamant, Petite Anse is a hamlet of fishermen. Its pebble beach has no particular charm.

Au centre, d'anciennes maisons créoles en bois composent le bourg et participent au calme de la commune faisant face à la plage. Celle-ci est d'ailleurs très agréable assez peu fréquentée. Le sable est blanc et la mer turquoise ... A quelques mètres du bord, un rocher émergeant abrite une foule de petits poissons tricolores, idéal pour les nageurs avec masque et tuba!

Au nord, en direction de Trois Rivières, Grande Anse abrite une longue et belle plage de sable doré bordée de cocotiers et de petites échoppes. C'est une des plages populaires de l'île où les Martiniquais se retrouvent le week-end en famille.
Au sud en direction du Diamant, Petite Anse est un hameau de pêcheurs. Sa plage de galets ne présente pas de charme particulier.
