Black sand like no other
The volcanic sand, one of the few on the island and the only one at the southern beaches, is sure to make an impact. Delight the goth in you with a beautiful beach with black sand and calm turquoise blue waters. It sounds a bit like a landscape from a novel, and it could be! Except that here, it's a reality, and you won't believe your eyes.
The color of the sand at Anse Noire is all the more striking because it is only a few meters from Anse Dufour. Anse du Four, the untanned twin of Anse Noire, has some of the lightest sand on the island!
A marine fauna without equal
So you like diving? Especially snorkeling? Well Anse Noire is THE beach for you! With an incredible aquatic fauna, it would be a shame to miss an afternoon of underwater exploration. At the rendezvous... Multicolored fish and majestic turtles for a moment stolen from the mundanity of the rest of the days of the year. The magic of the underwater world of Anse Noire will charm young and old!
Jump off the cliffs to land in unreal waters rich in local fauna and flora. A little advice: turtles are most often found on the side of the cliffs and not towards the pontoon. No surprise, even turtles prefer a little privacy! So think about doing the same and plan your visit outside of vacations and weekends to enjoy an empty beach. With all that you have just learned about Anse Noire, it is no wonder that everyone likes to come here. Locals and tourists alike come to relax under the coconut trees while admiring the horizon.
Almost unreal calm waters
The clear blue sky, the black sand of the volcanic rock and the large coconut trees lining the shore will amaze you! Take a break for a few hours by diving into the magical waters of the place. The pontoon is there for that! Whether you're in the clear, fresh water or sunbathing on the sand, the view is breathtaking. To tell the truth, you haven't seen anything yet, it's underwater that there is the real treasure to discover.
Are you a fan of adventure? Kayaking and hiking await you
At the edge of the beach, you will find a small hut all colored and decorated with jewels. You can rent a kayak for a solo, romantic or family excursion in the water. All formulas are good when you are on the island of flowers! The welcome is warm (as everywhere else in Martinique). You will not miss to come back there.
End the day in beauty!
You are on a beautiful beach, at the other end of the world, with a breathtaking landscape. How will you end your day? Well the banana on the cake (no cherries here) is a beautiful sunset. Like you'll never experience anywhere else! Scan the horizon carefully, though. We'll let you in on a secret... The legend of the Caribbean green ray. As the sun disappears behind the sea, if you're lucky... you'll see an emerald green ray sparkle for a moment. The sparkle will disappear as quickly as it appeared. And you will have lived the legend yourself. One more story to take with you to a family dinner.
Anse Noire is waiting for you!
And stories, we are sure you will have a good bunch of them at the end of each stay in Martinique. Whether it's the paradisiacal beaches, the historical monuments of the island, the mythical sunsets... (I catch my breath) The waterfalls, the hikes, the flavors, the hospitality or the boat excursions, you will certainly fall under the island's charm. If it is not already the case!
