Le Vauclin is a town and commune on the southeast coast of the French Caribbean department of Martinique. At a Vauclin self-catering holiday rental you’ll have beautiful tropical scenery, with sublime beaches and a great variety of outdoor activities within easy reach.
Vauclin self-catering holiday accommodation is set in an area that is noted for the variety of outdoor recreation and water sports on offer. Water sports are especially popular, and the winds on this side of the island create perfect conditions for windsurfing and kite-surfing. Vauclin is regarded as an important centre for the latter – at the Vauclin Kite Center you’ll be able to hire all the equipment you could need for this sport, and get the instruction you’ll require to get started. Also in this location you’ll be able to hire surfboards, windsurfing equipment, canoes, sail-boats, kayaks and bodyboards.
The coast on this side of the island is beautifully craggy. Within minutes of Vauclin holiday rentals are sweeping sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, rocky outcrops, secluded coves and mangrove forest. One of the most beautiful beaches in the area can be found at Cap Chevalier, which features pristine white sands and is lined with palm trees, resulting in a picture perfect Caribbean setting.
