The overseas territory of Martinique is a small piece of France located where the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea meet, in a group of islands known as the Lesser Antilles. The island’s original Creole language name, Madinina, means ‘island of flowers’ and is an evocative reflection of the diversity of Martinique’s flora and landscapes.
The south, the most tourist-oriented part of the island, offers dancing in the evenings in Saint-Anne and sunbathing on Salines Beach ... You can also visit the Sugarcane Museum, the Clément au François distillery and treat yourself to a shopping spree in Trois Ilets.
In the less developed north, you can stroll amidst the botanical splendour of the Jardin de Balata, climb Mount Pelée, and stroll through the ruins of Saint-Pierre… This end of the island has a much more mountainous and green terrain that holds some real surprises.
