Where is Robert located in Martinique?
Le Robert is an authentic fishing village nestled at the bottom of a bay protected by two advances: La Pointe Larose and La Pointe Rouge. Located on the Atlantic coast of Martinique, the Robert has many points of interest.
Allow around twenty minutes by car to get to Aimé Césaire airport. Likewise, Fort de France is only 20 minutes from Robert outside of peak hours.
Even closer, La Trinité and the Caravelle peninsula are easily accessible from the Robert and are worth a visit. The beaches of Trinité and Tartane on the Caravelle peninsula are particularly famous for the practice of surfing.
Finally, the town of François, particularly renowned for its islets, is only a few kilometers from the Robert and is just as worth a detour. It is also at François that you can visit the sumptuous Clément home where rums of the same name are made. It is in this same area that the Clément foundation is located, where art exhibitions are organized. In short, a must near the Robert!
What to do and see at Robert in Martinique?
On the Robert route, at the roundabout at the entrance to the town, do not hesitate to stop and buy a bottle of cane juice. This refreshing drink is drunk at any time of the day and can even be put in a ti punch to replace cane sugar!
One of Robert’s strong points of interest is the An Griyav’la, a former sugar plantation that now produces guava. Its owners regularly organize absolutely fascinating snacks and guided tours. This is where you will learn more about the production of fruits and vegetables from Martinique.
You can also find many tropical fruits at the Robert covered market, located opposite the town hall. Local vegetables, liqueurs and spices complete the offer of local products. You can also buy madras, typically Martinican fabrics, to make a shirt or dress.
In downtown Robert, the colorful town hall and the blue and white church, dedicated to Rose de Lima, are beautiful monuments to photograph.
Note that the Robert is not a town with a beach. However, its seaside and its small Creole restaurants are worth the detour. Departing from Robert's marina, take a kayak excursion to discover the islets and hidden corners of the bay. Treat yourself to a unique view of the Atlantic coast of Martinique. You will also be able to rent a mask and snorkels to explore the seabed. Note, however, that apart from the edges of the islets, the Atlantic coast is not famous for its scuba diving, for that you will have to travel to the Caribbean coast further south of the island.
Finally, the essential of the town of Robert and more generally the essential during a stay in Martinique, is none other than a boat trip in the islets and white backgrounds (sandbanks where you can walk deep sea). A boat trip for the day will allow you to discover all the treasures. Remember to wear a hat and sunscreen!
After a busy day of discovery, we recommend a stop at the Fruityboul glacier in downtown Robert, one of the best ice cream stands on the island. The hardest ? Choose from all the available flavors: peanut, guava, lemongrass, Julie mango, passion orange ... and of course everything is homemade!

Discover the Robert islets
From the coastline, you can see the outline of a chain of ten islets that you can discover while enjoying a trip aboard a skiff, a motor boat or a catamaran from Robert Marina. Many fishermen and excursionists offer day-long “island discovery” outings with the traditional baptism of rum with white bottoms. Departing from the peaceful Robert Marina, embark on a day of sea excursion. During the excursion, you disembark on Chancel islet, the largest of the Robert islets, which houses an iguana colony endemic to the Lesser Antilles , the "Iguana Delicatissima". Be careful, if you do not see them, they are watching you from the branches of the Campêches!
Note that it is safer to book your excursion in advance to be sure you have a place.
The excursions generally include a lunch on an islet, often Madame or Oscar islet which both have a pontoon. After a meal with local flavors, bring fins, mask and snorkel to explore the surrounding seabed. If the sea is not too rough, the captain may take you to discover Loup Garou. This long sandbank in the open sea on which a few coconut palms remain is one of the turtle's nesting landmarks.
The community of Sainte Anne, the most southern of the island, with the Savannah of petrification and the famous Salines beach is only 45 minutes by car.
In addition, you only need to drive 35 minutes to reach the Atlantic coast of Martinique and reach the Vauclin. It is in this town that the main kitesurf spots of Martinique are located.
Finally, the town is located a few kilometers from one of the largest shopping centers on the island: Génipa, which is particularly useful for shopping at lower cost.
In short, Rivière Salée is an excellent compromise to take full advantage of the riches of southern Martinique with a reasonable rental budget.
