La Savane is the central place of Fort de France. It’s a large park facing the sea. Like many Foyalais for many decades I like to walk around the lawn under the shade of the palm trees, I like to listen to live music, I...More

That place is really crowded with weird people at night. During the day it is okay, nothing too special to see there.

One of the more interesting sights in Fort-de-France is the statue of Josephine in the park. She's headless (and will probably remain so) and has been vandalized, but this is perhaps not surprising given her relationship with Martinique. There are several small places to eat...More

This is the area were you have your restaurants, shopping and a boardwalk along the beach. Ferry’s are close by and there is also a park that’s family friendly and utilized by the locals.

The park is an expansive green space that provides a nice, relaxing respite from the hustle and bustle of town. It is very close to the port, playground, Fort St Louis and of course town. Not a must-see but a nice place to walk and...More

Historical park in FDF - we loved it. Headless Empress Josephine residing over it at the one end. Nice place to relax at.

Had a walk round the park but it was nothing special, grass was wet due to the amount of rain that had previously fallen. A few cafes on and close to the park for refreshments/snacks. It’s close to the sea front and a play park.
