Authentic Tour of Southern Martinique

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
From your hotel or cruise port in Fort-de-France, go on an adventure in the south of Martinique for an authentic tour that will offer you the most beautiful views, from a pottery village to a distillery through the unmistakable Diamond Rock and a nice beach stop! Expect a unique experience with a local guide on this 5-hour excursion.
  • All transportation included so passengers can focus on the scenery
  • Comprehensive overview of Martinique culture through several stops
  • Learn more about the island from your local guide
  • Rum tastings at a local distillery and all entrance fees included
What to Expect
Be ready for convenient pickup at your hotel or at the cruise terminal in Fort-de-France. Climb into your tour vehicle and take off on a half-day tour of southern Martinique's cultural highlights, starting with a brief sightseeing spin through Fort-de-France. Enjoy the scenery from the window of the tour vehicle as your guide does the driving. Once you arrive at the island's southern shores, visit a local pottery studio to see artisans in action and pick up local souvenirs. Learn about the tradition of pottery-making in Martinique from your guide before moving on to Les Anses d'Arlet to see the Caribbean coastline, where you can go swimming and snorkeling. Diamond Rock is next, one of the island's natural highlights formed over years of wear from wind and sea. A nearby slavery memorial teaches visitors about the history of slavery in Martinique, followed by an open market visit and a distillery for rum tastings.
