In the heart of the Antilles, Fort-de-France is the biggest town on Martinique. A sunny island paradise lined with white, sandy beaches, you should book a flight to Fort-de-France and explore the marine depths, head out on a jet-ski, take a cruise or simply soak in the warm seas. It’s the perfect Caribbean holiday. Tour Madinina, where eco-tourism takes the forefront – stroll along the coast, go canyoning and explore the island by 4WD or on horseback. You can also take boat trips to Martinique’s neighbouring islands of Oscar, Thierry, Dominica or Saint Lucia, each as idyllic as the next. Once in Fort-de-France make sure you visit the incredible 19th Century Schœlcher Library, a classified French Historic Monument and home to thousands of literary and musical volumes. Likewise for the La Savane Park and the town’s covered markets, which are worth every penny. Reserve a hotel room in Fort-de-France close to its markets. With their exotic products and buzzing atmosphere, they’ll give you a taste of life in the Caribbean, where rum and spice are the holiday flavours. Talking of rum…it’s an island speciality. Sip a chilled Ti’ punch whilst paddling in the surf of this island paradise!
