Presqu’île de Caravelle
This charming peninsula has some gorgeous stretches of beach and a wild and untamed feel in parts. A gently twisting road with spectacular views runs through sugarcane fields to the peninsula’s main village, charming Tartane, and then on to Baie du Galion. On the north side of the peninsula are a couple of protected beaches.
Route de la Trace
The Route de la Trace (N3) winds up into the mountains north from Fort-de-France. It’s a beautiful drive through a lush rainforest of tall tree ferns, anthurium-covered hillsides and thick clumps of roadside bamboo. The road passes along the eastern flanks of the volcanic mountain peaks of the Pitons du Carbet.
