Long Description:

The Trace des Caps is one of Martinique's most famous hiking trails, but it is also the 27 km longest.

This route, which is most often by the sea, allows to discover the south of the Atlantic coast with its coral reef and its beautiful white sand beaches.

Given its length this hike can be done in several distinct stages.

It is thus usual to break it down into 5 sections: Small Macabou - Cap Macré (5 km, 2h), Cap Macré - Cap Chevalier (7 km, 3h), Cap Chevalier - Bay of the English (6 km, 2h30), Anse Trabaud - Salines (5 km, 2h), Salines - Anse Caritan (4.5 km, 1h30).

The photos that I propose to you are on the path that goes from Salines to Anse Caritan, through Anse Meunier and Pointe Dunkerque.

La Trace des Caps compte parmi les randonnées pédestres les plus réputées de Martinique mais c'est également, avec ses 27 kilomètres, la plus longue.

Cet itinéraire, qui reste le plus souvent en bord de mer, permet de découvrir le sud de la côte atlantique avec sa barrière de corail et ses magnifiques plages de sable blanc.

Compte tenu de sa longueur cette randonnée peut se faire en plusieurs étapes distinctes.

Il est ainsi habituel de la décomposer en 5 tronçons: Petit Macabou - Cap Macré (5 km, 2h), Cap Macré - Cap Chevalier (7 km, 3h), Cap Chevalier - Baie des Anglais (6 km, 2h30), Anse Trabaud - Salines (5 km, 2h), Salines - Anse Caritan (4,5 km, 1h30).

Les Photos que je vous propose se situe sur le sentier qui va des Salines jusqu'à l'Anse Caritan, en passant par l'Anse Meunier et la Pointe Dunkerque.
