One of the most popular tourist spots in Martinique, Sainte-Anne is a convenient access point for the beautiful white sand beaches of the south tip of the island. The town is arguably the prettiest on the island and offers a few good restaurants and hotels but is not overdeveloped. The most popular beach in Sainte-Anne is Les Salines, only a five-minute drive from the city. Les Salines is stunning and has good facilities like snack stands, public restrooms, and showers. The only downside to Les Salines is that it can be very overcrowded in peak season and on weekends - it is better to visit during the week to avoid the crowds. Sainte-Anne also boasts a craft market which is a good stop for those seeking souvenirs.
