Despite its rather small size and being little known abroad, Martinique island counts several unique sights, one of them being Flamands Bay. This bay has indeed been ranked as one of the most beautiful bays in the world. Consider renting a car to go and enjoy the sights on Flamands Bay.
Martinique counts a number of incredibly beautiful bays but not one compares to Flamands Bay (west coast). This bay is one of the crown jewels of Martinique and its name is a tribute to the Dutch refugees that arrived in Martinique in the 17th century (after being expelled from Brazil).
In 2011, at the World Travel Market (WTM) in London, the Club of the Most Beautiful Bay in the World association included Flamands Bay in its ranking. Thanks to the beauty of its sights but also to its exceptional fauna and flora (about a thousand endemic species), the Flamands Bay, (also called Fort-de-France Bay) is now listed among the world’s most beautiful bays.
To admire Flamands Bay, you can directly go to the Fort-de-France or Trois-Îlets seaside. You can also go to one of the observation decks that overlook the city and the sea, such as the Fort Saint-Louis, with its breathtaking view on the bay.
A little advice from Jumbo Car Martinique : rent an economy car to go contemplate the Flamands Bay.
Flamands Bay is located on the west coast of Martinique, with Fort-de-France on the northern shore and Trois-Îlets on the southern. To better enjoy your visit and find the spot with the best view, consider renting a car.
