Fort de France
Fort de France has many open-air markets in which to treasure hunt, as well as museums to visit and architecture to admire. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from as well as produce markets to pick up fresh fish and local fruits and treats to prepare on board. Anchoring here may prove to be on the choppy side due to the ferry traffic, but it calms down at night. Anchoring on the opposite end of the bay is a wiser choice.

St. Pierre was the original capital of Martinique, and known as the Paris of the Caribbean. In 1902 the volcano erupted burying the city with ash and lava.
