A PORT, A HISTORY
Located in the extension of La Pointe des Grives over an area of 12 ha, the marina project was initiated in 1988 by the city of Fort-de-France. Subsequently, in 2001, the Central Agglomeration Community of Martinique ( Communauté d’Agglomération du
Centre de la Martinique – CACEM), within the framework of its Economic Development duty, declared the construction and management of the marina area a matter of community interest.
The community marina project is an integral part of the collaborative Development Zone (Zone d’Aménagement Concertée – ZAC) of The Étang Z’Abricots. This ambitious project led by the CACEM is part of a wider project to enhance the coastal stretch of Fort-de-France, Schœlcher and Lamentin.
The Étang Z’Abricots marina is made up of two basins, Z’abricots and Grives. The Z’abricots basin, 4 meters deep, is equipped with mooring pontoons. The Grives basin, with a depth of 7 meters, will contribute to the expansion of the port.
