Side of the roadRight
The road system is well developed and surfaced.
The island has excellent car hire facilities. You can also hire bikes and mopeds.
Plentiful and reasonably cheap if shared. The majority of taxis are Mercedes-Benz. Main taxi stands are at major hotels, resorts and the airport.
An International Driving Permit is recommended, but a national driving licence is sufficient, provided you have at least one year's experience. The minimum driving age is 21.
Public buses serve Fort-de-France and beyond. Share taxis are called 'taxicos' and can be a great way to meet locals.
Scheduled ferries ply between Fort-de-France and the main resorts of Trois Îlets and Sainte-Anne via Anse Mitan, Pointe du Bout, Anse à l'Âne and Anses d'Arlet.
