The Sainte-Anne peninsula is located at the southern end of Martinique. It has beautiful sandy beaches. Among them, the beach of Grande Anse des Salines, about one kilometer long, is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. It is located about 5 km south of the town of Sainte-Anne. It is rather crowded on weekends.

On the nearby smaller beach of Petite Anse des Salines, there are some manchineel trees. The leaves, fruit, pollen and resin of these small trees contain strong toxins. It is generally unwise to take a nap under these trees.

Other beaches on the peninsula include Anse Caritan Beach and Anse Meunier Beach on the west coast (Caribbean side) and Anse Trabaud Beach on the east coast (Atlantic coast).

The Etang des Salines (a large pond), which is protected by the international Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance is located in the same region. The island of St. Lucia is not very far south.
