Welcome to the municipality of the Carbet, located in the North Caribbean of Martinique. This town enjoys its seaside location to offer many water activities (jet ski, …) and discoveries of marine biodiversity (fishing, dolphins, …). Many restaurants and bars enjoy this seaside with a wonderful sunset at the end of the day. Each week of full moon, you can participate to the fullmoon that takes place in the town. In terms of services, you will also find a gas station, a post office, banks, a pharmacy, a covered market for fish, and a recognized glacier located in the village next to the church.
Finally, in terms of discoveries, you can visit the Habitation Neisson and explore the surrounding area to Saint-Pierre to discover its ruins and starting points for hiking such as the Slave Canal (also called Beauregard Canal).
The Carbet beach is one of the largest beaches on the North Caribbean coast. This black sand cove is ideal for swimming and enjoying a beautiful sunset. It is also the place of the fourth and last landing of Christopher Columbus, June 15, 1502.
Easily accessible by car, you can park near the beach for a walk or enjoy the many restaurants by the sea. Swimming is not supervised on this beach.
I repeat myself but you should stay to enjoy and to observe a beautiful sunset
To access the starting point of the hike, starting from Fort-de-France (count more than one hour of road), take the A1 towards the North of the island (Schoelcher, Case-Pilote). Go through several roundabouts and here you are on the N2. Continue your road and pass the towns of Case-Pilote, Bellefontaine, when you arrive at the town of the Carbet, you will see the sign “the Beach of Coin” (you will be in a corner of the beach where you will find many restaurants), turn left and join the beach. You can choose to go along and find your little piece of paradise a little further.
You will find easily a place to park but not on weekends, the many restaurants are very busy and places can be difficult to find
From the parking space, you will quickly see the Caribbean Sea in front of you.
If you have opted for the beach of the corner, you can admire the stretch of black sand of the beach of Carbet. On this side, generally, many pelicans land on the poles of an old pontoon
If you choose to get away from the beach of the Corner, you will be able to notice important space and that this beach is well exposed to the sun.
Watch out for these effects
As you can see in the pictures above, the beach has few places in the shade. Think, you to provide the protections for children with sun cream index 50 or lycra. The sun is harmful between 10 am and 2 pm, you can also enjoy it for lunch in one of the seaside restaurants
You will have a range of restaurants from the beach at the other end of the beach of Carbet. You can discover Creole cuisine and taste fresh products caught the morning.
It’s time for you to relax on the beach to digest your meal and to see the beautiful sunset
A beautiful sunset……
Coming soon, we will make a video of the sunset on our Youtube channel.
