Sophisticated and cosmopolitan, the French island of Martinique is the perfect combination of stunning beaches, breathtaking natural beauty, and diverse landscapes. Martinique is located north of St Lucia and northwest of Barbados, nestled in the heart of the Lesser Antilles.
As one of the best-kept secrets in the Caribbean, this charming island paradise is home to picturesque sheltered bays, calm turquoise waters, and miles of golden, white and black sand beaches. One of the most beautiful beaches, Grand Anse des Salines, is home to fine, white sand, tranquil waters and natural rock pools - the perfect spot to relax and unwind.
Set sail for attractive and secluded deserted beaches accessible only by yacht. Discover and explore incredible scuba and snorkel sites that include the steep ledges of Diamond Rock and the Saint-Pierre Shipwrecks that offer a fantastic array of marine life.
Mount Pelée, the highest point of the island, provides an exciting hiking route for those feeling active, and offers incredible panoramic views across Martinique. The capital, Fort-de-France showcases colonial architecture, botanical gardens and colorful streets filled with boutiques, bars, and restaurants. Sample a taste of French Creole cuisine and the famous Columbo de Martinique – a curry dish that is inspired by French, East and West Indian spices. Or try a glass of Ti Punch, made from locally produced Rhum Agricole, sugarcane and lime juice as you watch the sun as it sets over the horizon.
