Found in the south of Martinique, the town of Diamant gets it’s name from the famous rock whose reflection in the water make it shine and shimmer like the precious stone. An exceptional diving site, many clubs offer outings and first-time dives, especially around the diamond rock whose sides are covered in coral. Its white sand beach, a bit more than 4 kilometers, reaps the benefits from the nearby overhanging vegetation, creating a shade ideal for picnics. The sea, often a little wavy, will excite all body surfers!
After a day of basking in the sun, take the time to get up to the memorial at Anse Cafard. There you’ll find fifteen statues with bowed heads, sculpted by a Martiniquian artist (François Valère) in homage to a large shipwreck in Diamant in 1830.
For the most adventurous, we invite you to take the trail upwards by climbing the steep 400 meters to de Morne archer. After the climb to this old volcano, you will be rewarded by a spectacular view of Diamant’s Grand Anse, and if the sky is clear you’ll see St. Lucia on the horizon.
