#<Prismic::Fragments::StructuredText:0x0000564adf5e2448>

Borgnese Point is located in the southern part of the island of Martinique, on the Caribbean side. It is also sometimes called Pointe Borgnesse.

It is a real little nugget of nature and beauty and a paradise for divers! It is an intimate and wild beach with blond sand and transparent water. Little known by tourists who, in their hurry to reach Sainte Anne, often miss it. It is a peaceful place, ideal for idleness.

In order to enjoy this open air aquarium, don't forget your fins, mask and snorkel! Martinique's aquatic fauna and flora await you. You will be able to admire corals and their inhabitants, tropical fish, starfish, sponges and other sea urchins. Be careful, the whole area is protected, so fishing is forbidden!

This is for the aquatic part. If you are more of a hiking enthusiast, you will enjoy the place as much! Indeed, a path allows you to discover the nearby Morne Aca. Be careful, it climbs! But the view from the top is well worth your efforts to climb the stony ascent that leads to it. The summit offers a unique panorama on the bay of Marin.
