Le Prêcheur - Martinique
With Saint-Pierre, of which it was a district, Le Prêcheur is the first zone of occupation of Martinique. Its name would come from a rock now immersed whose form drew a preacher.

Le Prêcheur is surrounded by many black sand beaches (Anse Céron, Anse Couleuvre, Anse Lévrier, Anse à voile, Anse la Celle, Anse des Galets ...), starting points of many excursions, and by a luxuriant and dense nature.

The habitation Céron located 5 km to the North of Le Prêcheur, shows ruins of an old sugar refinery of the 17th century in a park of trees centenaries . One meets in this old habitation some green anolis, hummingbirds Madeira, red partridges, matoutous cliff as well as a large tree zamana 250 years old.
