Located inland, in the center of Martinique, the village of Ducos enjoys an ideal location for easily traveling around the island. If you want to discover the diversity of Martinican landscapes without wasting time on the road, this location is for you!

What to do at Ducos in Martinique?
If Ducos is often only a place of passage to the various tourist sites of the island, the fact remains that its village, its church and its small shops have a certain charm. Originally known as Trou-au-Chat until 1855, Ducos was farmland of banana trees and then sugar cane fields. Today Ducos has become one of the main commercial areas in Martinique.
Likewise, although it has few tourist centers of interest, Ducos is a town with a huge mangrove that borders the sea. Do not hesitate to take a short excursion thanks to Fun Kayak. This peaceful stroll along the water will allow you to discover the flora and fauna of this special place.
The flagship location of the town remains the Génipa Shopping Center, which is the largest shopping center in the South. Halfway between Ducos and Rivière Salée, it offers a wide choice of brands and shops without forgetting its supermarket where you will find your favorite products.
A little further, on the edge of the town of Lamentin, is the Carrère Racecourse. This place promises you a warm and welcoming atmosphere around the great galloping tracks. Come watch the fastest horses in Martinique! This racetrack has a panoramic restaurant available upon reservation. Without forgetting the vendors of ice cream or crêperies for the greediest.
Finally, note that a fitness trail is located near the Ducos gymnasium. This hilly course offers a loop of about 1 kilometer. Lit in the evening, it allows you to jog at the end of the day. A petanque and basketball courts are located in the same place.
Discover Ducos through Martinican gastronomy
One of Ducos' unquestionable interests concerns Martinican gastronomy. Indeed, this is where you will find one of the best smoked chickens on the island! Let yourself be tempted and stop on the side of the road that leads to François at the Ducos roundabout to taste this delicious West Indian specialty. In addition, the "Catherine Pivaty" grocery store, better known by the name "Chez Mme Aglaé", will help you with extra shopping. However it is on Friday that we recommend you go there, to taste the famous sandwich with accras .... yes it is possible!
Looking for a place to dine with family or friends? It is on the side of the industrial area of Ducos that stands the Nagoya restaurant, a restaurant where you will find all the flavors of Japanese and Thai cuisine.
For a business lunch or a family meal after returning from Fort-de-France and heading to the southern beaches, stop at Ducos at the restaurant l'assiette et Ben. Only open for lunch, this restaurant offers a varied menu including a selection of fish and meat. However, it is especially for these famous "hamburger" that this restaurant is known. The hamburger bread is homemade and the ingredients that make it up delicious, such as the shrimp sautéed with spices, wasabi and tzatziki sauce.
It is also in Ducos that you will be able to find every Wednesday morning a fruit and vegetable market from organic farming organized by the OrgaPéyi association on the Route du Bois Rouge on the way to François.
Finally, a few minutes from Ducos, on the Lamentin road, discover the Perrine farm. A fabulous place for young and old.
