Fort de France is the largest city on Martinique and is a cruise ship port. The spacious anchorage is between the fort and the buoys marking off the turning basin for the cruise ships.  There is frequent ferry wash but otherwise it is quite a nice spot! The nice dinghy dock is straight in from the anchorage and runs along a park. There are lots of rings for tying  (and locking) it up. Despite write-ups of dinghy theft we saw no shady characters by day and were really impressed with how neat & tidy and friendly the city was. A tourist office is right across the street from the dinghy dock. On cruise ship days there are staff outside of it handing out maps and info on the city. There are also more city representatives stationed along the pedestrian streets to help visitors. There are of course many restaurants, shops, and a few chandleries. Plenty of yacht services here. Ferry service to Anse Mitan and adjacent coves.
