Planning a Trip
If you're driving from Fort-de-France, take Route 1, which crosses the plain of Lamentin -- the industrial area of Fort-de-France and the site of the international airport. Often the air is filled with the fragrance of caramel, from the large sugar-cane factories in the surrounding area. After about 30km (19 miles), you reach Les Trois-Ilets. Five kilometers (3 miles) farther on your right, take Route D38 to Pointe du Bout.
