Situated in the Lower Antilles between Dominica and St Lucia, Martinique is a lush tropical paradise island with a blend of French, African, Middle Eastern and Caribbean influences forming the Creole culture. It’s vibrant, beautiful and charming, with plenty of spots designed for relaxation as well as some fascinating attractions to explore. Discover the Church of Balata, an impressive replica of Paris’ Sacre-Couer Basilica, or head offshore on a snorkelling trip to explore the coral reefs and marine life. Fort-de-France, on the west coast, is the capital of the island with great shops and restaurants to experience.
The island’s soil is well suited for growing fruits, with the banana plantations providing one of its main exports. Visit a plantation to learn more about the growing process and see the banana fields up close. It’s not just fruit that grows exceptionally well here though, as the Balata Botanical Garden shows with its amazing collection of exotic plant life. Or why not sample one of the other famous exports of the island at the Rum Distillery, where many of the world’s best rums are made.
The currency in Martinique is the Euro. Martinique is 4 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT -4).
