Diamond Rock offers a nice setting on a attractive coast. Worth a stop when touring around. We did not visit the rock itself.

At first I was a little wary of traveling to go see a rock but the drive down was great, the food was great, the views were even more awesome. I recommend going to the rock then the caffard memorial and then hit the beach with a panini and beer in hand.

Diamant is worth the visit! Parking in the town was plentiful, though be mindful that the road will be briefly closed to thru traffic when the buses arrive to pick up children being let out of school. The black sand beaches are beautiful, as is Diamant itself. The waves can be very rough, and though i didn't brave more than... More

A facinating geological anomaly, this rock sticks out of the sea and is home to a wide collection of seabirds whose daily life is now recorded on video by a set of cameras which have been placed on the rock with the aid of a helicopter supplying the equipment and skilful camera technicians who can also rappel down cliffs and...

We drove down to Diamant Beach early am and found we were the only people on the beach that stretches perhaps 3km. Flat, fine grain sand and wonderful to walk either direction. Beautiful view of Le Diamant - lots of history here. The surf we were told was considered "rough" - like being in a "washing machine", but for us... More

We had perfect view from our deck of Diamond Rock, made each sunset and sunrise that much more beautiful. It is worth a ride to Diamond Beach for the quiet beaches there and at Saint Luce. Walking trail connects you to multiple beaches there.

I visited Martinique and stayed in Le Diamant. I went to the beach to get a view of this rock, and it was worth it. I wouldn't recommend swimming there unless you are a body surfer. The waves are huge and rough.
