  • What's to see and do in Martinique?

    .- Beaches of course! the most famous one is Grande Anse des Salines in the South. But there are many others, less crowded. From the ones I have visited, I recommend the following: * South: Anse Trabaud (access during hike of Savane des Pétrifications); at St Anne, Anse Meunier and beaches of St Anne. * Southwest: Anse Noire, Anse Dufour, beach of...

  • What guidebook to buy?

    .It seems that if you do not speak French, you may have a hard time to find a recent guide on Martinique exclusively. The only one in English I could find on Amazon was from Ulysses and dates back to 2001! I still suggest you should try to get it (get a cheap used copy), because without a guide you are going to miss a lot of wonderful sights. There...

  • Palms again!

    If you go to Martinique, don' t miss Fort de France and it's market, and go absolutely on the southern part of the island, because you won't find anything nice, not even beaches, going north.Nice place to visit is Village Creole at Trois Ilets.

  • The coolest thing about...

    The coolest thing about Martinique is that it is the birthplace of the Empress Josephine. You can visit La Pagerie where she was born and see all sorts of beautiful portraits of her. I didn't know much about Josephine until I visited La Pagerie, but afterward I became fascinated with her and to this day I read every biography I can find about...

  • travelqueen7's General Tip

    Martinique is warm and welcoming country. It is an overseas department of France so they do speak French. I found few spoke fluent English, but as long as you try to communicate they are very accomodating in helping you get what you are asking for.

    Look out for the old guys with bunches of palm leaves - It is worth hanging around to see them make you things. One guy made a really cool hat (which we still have) in about 2 minutes. He didn't seem too bothered about being paid (sign of a true artist!)- but we paid him anyway (I think he knew we would!).

    The primary reason for someone to go to Martinique (unless they happen to be there by virtue of a cruise itinerary) is to RELAX and enjoy the more peaceful island lifestyle. You MUST spend time on the beach and in the water. There are so many beautiful beaches here, even topless beaches. (While officially only topless, if one is so inclined, I...

    Go to the Internet Cafe in Fort de France called Le Web Cyber Cafe, 4 Rue Blénac ( bizness.cgit.com/LeWeb/ )Young guys from the military stations nearby come here to email and drink. Theyre really sociable, and I spent a lot of time chatting to them. In return for my efforts I got bitten on the neck by one, another wanted to come with me, and...

    Throughout the island of Martinique, (pop: 399,000) the scenery is dramatic and very beautiful, with lush rainforest coating the slopes of the mountains and swathes of sugar cane grown on the plain. The island is 65 km long and 31 km wide with mountains in the north and south and a low-lying ‘waist’ where most people live. The coastline is...
