Grand-Rivière - Martinique
At the North of the island, Grand-Rivière is situated between the Mount Pelée and the Dominica Channel. Offering the shorter way between Martinique and the Dominica, Grand-Rivière was initially inhabited by the Caribbean Indians then by the French at the 17th century, at the first times of colonization.

The area of Grand-Rivière is very mountainous (Morne Balata, Morne Tique, Morne Citron), the coast is made of caps (cap Saint Martin) as well as beaches (Anse Dufour, Anse du Débarcadère, Anse de la Bagasse).

In front of the town hall of Grand-Rivière starts the path leading to Le Prêcheur. This 6 hours excursion passes by the habitation Fond Moulin, crosses the river Trois-Bras (water point) for then joining the littoral by the Cap St-Martin, the Anse des Galets, Anse Couleuvre and Anse Céron.
