The Baignoire de Josephine

Martinique, like many Caribbean islands, is known for the beauty of its waters and for its crystal clear quality - those shallow sandy grounds give the impression of being in a pool in the middle of the ocean. Rent a car to get to the marina, where you will be able to go to discover the most famous shallow white waters of the Martinique: the Baignoire de Josephine (Joesephine's bathtub).

Located near the François, on the eastern side of Martinique, the Baignoire de Josephine is more like a pool, with turquoise and crystal clear water, than a tub. According to legends, this beautiful place in Martinique got its name because Empress Josephine (Napoleon's wife) loved bathing in it. Which is not hard to understand. Still to this day, boats and catamarans come from all across Martinique to cast their anchors there.
