Beach la Charmeuse

Beach la Charmeuse is the most southern beach of Prêcheur and therefore closest to the town beach. It is also a black sand beach as any other of the town.

It is uncrowded and bathers are mainly the local population. Small rocks replace in some areas the sand on the beach so bring appropriate footwear for walking without feet hurt.

From the beach, you can have a wonderful view of the village of the town including the church, whose bell tower built in the 17th century was a gift from King Louis XIV Marquise de Maintenon. Indeed, the Marquise, secret wife of Louis XIV loved Martinique and especially the Prêcheur, where she had lived a part of her life.

A small bridge nearby is the starting point for a tour of the Prêcheur coves where an alcoholic snack is offered at the end of course.

To get there from Fort-de-France, follow the N2 towards Saint-Pierre and once arrived in Saint-Pierre, take the D10 to the Prêcheur. Shortly after the town, a sign announces the entrance to the beach.
