I am Christelle, explorer in Martinique I inspected 7 vacation rentals in Schoelcher
This town, located to the west of Fort-de-France, was renamed in 1889 and now bears the name of the French politician Victor Schoelcher. Its geographic location in Martinique, between Fort-de-France and Case-Pilote, is a real advantage for those wanting to explore the northern Caribbean part of the island which features lush vegetation and black sand beaches. These two towns are only ten minutes away by car. Perhaps you would like to have a drink at Shell's, a bar and restaurant, or sample a bokit (a fried dough sandwich stuffed with the filling of your choice: meat, eggs, ham, cheese or fish) in the capital's downtown district.
The town, in and of itself, also features many interesting things to see. The town of Schoelcher is known for its beach lined with small restaurants. On some nights you'll be surrounded by a pleasant Creole-style ambiance. Small groups of local musicians provide entertainment along the seafront while the local inhabitants enjoy a game of dominos. We strongly recommend that you taste the poulet boucané (smoked chicken) at Fan de Grill while taking in the sunset. The beaches at Madiana and Anse Madame are also great spots to admire the sunset. In addition, a water sports center is located on the beach and provides a number of activities. It's a great opportunity to sail a Hobie Cat or try windsurfing, kayaking or rowing. A diving club at the base of Hotel La Batelière makes it possible to discover the sea floor and shipwrecks, particularly the diving spots in the north Caribbean part of the island.
In addition, the town of Schoelcher boasts the island's only cinema complexand a casino —a great place to have fun once the sun goes down. You can prolong the fun by heading over to Lili's waterfront bar and restaurant for luscious cocktails. The Anba Fèy Tôl restaurant serves mouthwatering food and should not be overlooked for its Creole menu and unique setting.
Schoelcher is thus the perfect town for those wanting to discover Martinique in an authentic way. Why not combine a weeklong stay in Schoelcher with a week in the South. In this way, you could easily fan out over the north of the island without doing a lot of driving. Fort-de-France, Carbet, Saint-Pierre—these must-see towns are all easily accessible from Schoelcher.
