There are two routes to get to Le Carbet from Fort-de-France. The first route includes a passage by the sea coast through Case-pilote and Bellefontaine. The second route includes a passage by the N3 through the city of Saint-Pierre. A few dozen meters separate Fort-de-France from Carbet. The journey will take you between 40 minutes and 1 hour. At the exit of the town of Carbet, you will find the Anse Latouche.

Anse Latouche

Anse Latouche shares the same characteristics of Anse Turin and the beach of Carbet. Anse Latouche is a small beach with beautiful volcanic gray sand. The sandy strip of the beach is full of coconut trees and beautiful palm trees. A perfect destination for tourists looking for relaxation and privacy. Anse Latouche is easily accessible due to its proximity to the main road.

Anse Latouche is located next to the famous Latouche house, one of Martinique's historical monuments. When you go to the beach, you can visit the Latouche house which was destroyed by the eruption of the volcano in 1902. Within the house, you will have the chance to see the animals of the Zoo of Martinique. The Zoo is home to various animal species including the jaguar, racoons, monkeys and others ... The Anse Latouche is also near a museum that will allow children to be entertained. You will also find a restaurant for your little hunger.

Don't worry about your rental car, the beach has a parking lot. Like Anse Turin, Anse Latouche is full of various marine species. You will have the chance to see fish of all colors and shapes. However, there are no water sports such as kayaking or jet skiing. In short, if you are looking for adrenaline, you may be disappointed. Anse Turin is more for lovers of relaxation and reading. Once there, smell the salty scent of the beach and let the cool breeze caress your face. Admire the beauty of the turquoise water of Anse Turin and sunbathe under the beach sun. Live the moment to the fullest and enjoy a unique experience.
