In Martinique

Must-see in the Caribbean, this island is part of the most visited in the region, especially for the French, who find in this overseas department a similar culture with an exotic touch due to the location. Thanks to secluded beaches, the environment of Martinique is ideal for adventures and intimacy. Indeed, the presence of tourists there is less important, and landscapes are amazing. Diamant beach, for instance, provides a wild setting and a rough sea, which is the reason why it is the favourite spot of diving enthusiasts. Lovers of aquatic nature will thus be able to treat themselves with snorkeling and explore the marine depths of the island, while still keeping in mind that the place is not for kids because of the high risks on the spot. But it does not end here. Martinique is also a family destination with safe spaces for kids on most of its beaches, such as Anse Caritan. Whatever you’re looking for, you will find on the island what you dream of without a doubt! Add it fascinating various cultural places which will get you busy throughout your stay, and it could not be perfect. Among the historical sites, we find the memorial of Anse Caffard, also known as Cap 110, which is today a place of memory for the atrocities of slavery. Make sure you have a walk in Fort de France, where architectural works such as the Savane and the Schoelcher library keep on impressing the tourists daily. At last, do not miss the two must-see activities in the island: a walk in Balata garden, and the artisanal tour of the Habitation Clément.
