In terms of advice, 

Ø Traffic in Martinique: During the week, you will face traffic jams around industrial or commercial areas, especially in the morning, in the direction of the South (Rivières Salée, N5) to the North (Fort-de-France, A1) and from the East (Robert, N1) to the North (Fort-de-France, A1), from 7 am to 9.30 am, and vice versa at the end of the evening from 5 pm to 6.30 pm. Think about your trip the day before in order to adapt to this traffic which can be dense and easily waste time. 

Ø Equipment: Slides, swimsuit, towel, beach bag (knife, k-way, cap, sunglasses, sunscreen, cash, mosquito repellent), mask, flipper and snorkel. 

Ø Health: 

– Quality of bathing area: Excellent (Source: Ministry of Health, see map); 

– Accessibility: Easily by car and access by foot; 

– Mandatory sunscreen because the beach is well exposed to the sun, even think of lycras for children and adults; 

Most important, always a bottle of water per person and something to snack in your bag. 

Miscellaneous: you can go and see the nearby beaches of the town of Tartane or Anse L’Etang (surf spot) or hike the Red Loop or the Presqu’île de la Caravelle.
