Trois-Ilets

— 8 nights
Named after three nearby islands, Trois-Ilets remains a small town few casual travelers ever get to explore.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at House of Sugar (Maison de la Canne) and Excursions et Loisirs en Martinique. You'll explore and learn at Le Musee de la Mer and Galerie de Sophen. Explore Trois-Ilets' surroundings by going to Habitation Clement (in Le Francois), Ecomusee de Martinique (in Riviere-Pilote) and Fort-de-France (St. Louis Cathedral & Marche Aux Poissons). There's still lots to do: get outside with Corail Club Caraibes, take a pleasant ride with Ranch Jack, wander the wide-open spaces of Ranch Anse Macabou, and take an in-depth tour of Musee Departemental de la Martinique.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Trois-Ilets trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
