What to do or see in Le Vauclin ?

  • The wind power plant of Morne Carrière (the only wind turbines on the island)

  • The Pointe Chaudière
  • Bust of Louis-Joseph Landa (Market place)
  • Pointe Faula and its white bottom. Protected by a coral reef, Pointe Faula is a very popular beach for the Martiniquais because the sandy bottom is barely covered by a few tens of centimeters of water and sinks from the edge to the Fonds Blancs in the middle of the lagoon, making it possible to reach them by walking. Another advantage of this beach is that its water is one of the warmest in the Caribbean.
