Baignoire de Joséphine

Baignoire de Joséphine is a must-see tourist site in Martinique, located in the commune of Le François on the Atlantic coast. It owes its name to the fact that, according to legend, Empress Joséphine de Beauharnais, wife of Napoleon 1st, liked to bathe here regularly.

It is a shallow-depth fond blanc barely a meter, where the water is crystal clear. This little corner between heaven and earth often leaves a lasting impression.

It is accessible by boat or kayak from Le François. Tastings of acras and rum or local cocktails are often on offer.

To get there, all you have to do is go to the commune of Le François near the coast, where you'll see the stands of tour operators offering to take you there.

It is possible to go there without an appointment except in full season when it is strongly recommended to book in advance with a company.
