Grande Anse des Salines beach

Ultimate guide (May 2024)
Grande Anse des Salines is a long wild beach in Martinique probably being the best one for car drivers in all of the Caribbean. This is exactly what we dream of during the cold winter evenings, so let's talk about the downsides. It's crowded even on weekdays, and you should come early in the morning to find a lot of free space at the car parking (just a sandy road). Sometimes there are some waves, but usually the water is calm. There is no snorkeling at all. There are often a lot of algae in the summer! However, all of this is not a real problem. Anyway, you will park your car somewhere. And if you walk a little to the side, you can always find a relatively quiet place. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #7 of the "Best beaches in the Caribbean"

Hotels [edit]

There are no hotels near the beach. The nearest accommodation options can be found a little to the north - in the town of Sainte Anne (room from US$70). By the way, there is a great walking pathway from Sainte Anne to the beaches of Salines, - about half an hour per way.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Martinique International Airport (FDF). Next hire a taxi.

When to go [edit]

The best time for a beach holiday in Grande Anse des Salines is a dry period from January to June.
