I have 3 nights in Martinique..
We will be finishing a sailing trip in November, and will stay on in Martinique for 3 nights.
Can anyone recommend a nice beachfront resort? We are looking for a quaint area with good swimming and snorkeling.
Would love to experience some of the local culture.
What are the things we cannot miss as first timers?
Should we rent a car or use shuttles? Thanks in advance for the help :)

Anse Dufour (Anse d'arlets) is a lovely small beach with very good snorkelling and swimming. There was local culture there with fisherman bringing in their catch. There isn't a resort or hotel there, maybe a B&B at the most. Alot of the beachfront hotels are in Trois Illets which is not quaint. I don't know anything about shuttles, I have rented a car there which you do need IMO. Or take taxis
