La Trinité, Tartane and the CaravelleTrinité
Trinité's town gives access to the sumptuous Caravelle peninsula, a 12 km long and 900 m wide peninsula which penetrates into the Atlantic and whose tormented coast, punctuated by wide bays in the south and Small coves to the north will charm you inevitably.
At the foot of the peninsula, on the Atlantic coast, the town of Trinidad is a town without any particular attraction apart, perhaps, its curious church of the eighteenth surmounted by a minaret!
From here, a road leads to the heart of the Caravelle peninsula and the pleasant village of Tartane. This small hamlet of fishermen has retained its authenticity despite a recent tourist development. Tartane is a peaceful place bordering a beach with calm waters, protected by the coral reef. Picnic tables, showers, beachfront coconut palms: Perfect for a stopover.
Very slightly to the northeast of Tartane, the Anse l'Etang or the Anse Bonneville were instead adopted by the surfers appreciating the waves "strong and unrolling".
The road stops a few kilometers after Tartane, at the entrance of the beautiful regional park of the peninsula of Caravelle. Two marked paths (for the small one, count 1h30, for the big one, count 3h30) allow to discover the magnificent landscapes of the peninsula, the mangrove of the Bay of the Treasure, the ruins of the castle Dubuc, the lighthouse of the Caravelle , The peaceful beauty of the southern coves contrasting with the wildness of the waves to the north, as well as the numerous birds (including some endemic Martinique) having elected domicile in the park. Remember it's hot and night falls early in Martinique: Go early, with water, hats and sunscreen.
