La Savane

La Savane is a vast and meticulously landscaped park with lots of trees, benches and fountains, the heart of public life in Fort-de-France with shopping, dining and entertainment options all around. Locals gather at the many cafes at all hours of the day, and visitors use it as a springboard from which to explore the surrounding sights.

Do & See

The picturesque seaside city of Fort-de-France offers plenty in the way of sights and attractions, including beautiful historical buildings, an imposing fort and ample walkability, but it is best used as a home-base for exploring the natural surroundings of the island of Martinique. Laze at idyllic beaches from coast to coast, hike up the commanding Mount Pelée, and marvel at the lush, tropical beauty of the island. The more historically-minded can check out the Musée de la Pagerie or contemplate the solemn Anse Cafard Slave Memorial, a sobering reminder or the country's and region's tumultuous past.
