Fort de France, the island's commercial centre and principal city is well worth a visit, while Anse D'Arlet is a popular, photogenic anchorage. Scenic highlights include the peaks of Carbet and Mont Pelée, a dormant volcano and the highest mountain on the island, plus trail upon trail through legendary tropical rainforest. But wherever you explore, you’re likely to discover croissants and baguettes to remind you that you’re in a corner of the Caribbean that is unmistakably French. The island’s large harbour Le Marin and its many marinas have made Martinique a major sailing destination.
Sail towards Anse d’Arlet and spend your first night at the anchorage.
