The eight best diving spots in Martinique 

The three most beautiful sites for snorkelers 

The coves of Arlet 

The pretty beach is located in front of the charming little fishing village of Anses Arlet. You will find white sand and clear water. The rocks, located a few dozen meters from the shore, which protrude from the sea, are home to a diverse marine fauna and flora.

In this reef, you will find, among others, coral fish and trumpet fish, as well as at least three varieties of lobsters and eels.


L'anse Noire 

Anse Noire takes its name from its black sand beach, and is located between Anses Arlet and Trois Ilets. Sheltered at the bottom of a cove, it is not very busy. On weekends, you will meet divers, attracted by the beautiful seabed of great diversity and unreal beauty.


Couleuvre Cove 

Even wilder and more remote, Anse Couleuvre, with its black sandy beach, will delight you with the richness of its seabed. You will find coral fish and, with a little luck, turtles.

Discover one of the wildest parts of Martinique, in an exceptional setting. To get there, you have to cross the ruins of an old house, the Maison Tardon, by a small path. All this in the middle of a tropical forest, giving you the impression of being on the edge of the world. During the dry season, the beach is really busy on weekends.


The five most beautiful diving sites in Martinique 

Discovering the wrecks of Saint-Pierre 

If you want to discover wrecks buried by the waves, the wrecks of Saint-Pierre are a great place to dive.


This wreck site is the most famous in the Caribbean. These ships with a sad fate sank during the eruption of Mount Pelee on May 8, 1902. A fiery cloud fell on them. At present, fourteen wrecks have been identified, at a depth of 20 to 80 meters. You can see Diamant, Clementina, La Thresa Lo Vigo, Tamaya, RaoraĂŻma, Gabrielle, and Theresa... Depending on the depth, you need a level from 1 to 3.


The Citadel, coral plateau 

At the Citadel, you will discover a superb coral plateau. In stages, the plateau plunges slowly at first, until it leads to a breathtaking slope of 60 m. On the first level, at 30 m, you will see lobsters, parrot fish, superb kingfish and wrasse. On the slope at 60 m, you will observe a slope colonized by gorgonians and sponges. It is a volcanic fauna which will be offered to your amazed eyes. A level 1 will be enough to discover this exceptional site.


Cape Solomon 

Here too, you will find a steep slope, up to 40 m deep. Not to be missed: Solomon's cave, only 3 meters deep. Depending on the places explored, you will need at least a level 1, if not a level 2 in diving.


You can admire barracudas, captains and box fish. There are also hard and soft corals, tubular sponges and basins, as well as red and yellow gorgonians.


Burgos Point 

Burgos Point is located in Anses d'Arlet, and is a superb underwater walk. While criss-crossing the rocks and faults from 5 to 25 m, you will discover a luxuriant marine fauna and flora, such as beautiful lobsters, platax or gorgonians...


This site is suitable for all levels. And if the drop-offs attract you, go and discover a 60 m slope along the plateau.


The Diamond Rock 

The Diamant rock is the most important site in Martinique. The immense rock of 175 m high shelters in its sides an underwater fault which crosses the rock from side to side. The fish, fauna and flora are very varied.


Thanks to its size, the rock has an impressive number of cavities, where many crabs, turtles, moray eels, triggerfish, surgeonfish or emperors can take refuge. Perhaps you will also discover a majestic ray? Some places are accessible to beginners, but you will need to be more experienced to fully explore this extraordinary site.



After this overview of the wonderful diving sites in Martinique, you are sure not to miss any of the unmissable spots. And our non-exhaustive selection of clubs will help you in your search for competent professionals. So, ready for an unforgettable diving trip in Martinique?
