Classically Caribbean in its landscape, Martinique offers the eternal crowd pleasers of stunning beaches, adventurous hikes and a top-notch cultural and culinary scene. Its volcanic origins see it dominated by Mount Pelee in the north of the island. Widely considered the most beautiful beach on the island, Les Salines is a long stretch of white sand flanked by calm, sheltered seas. As well as views onto nearby St. Lucia, you can also dine at one of the beachfront restaurants. The north of the island is a hotspot for hikers, with the mountainous side of Martinique home to lush rainforests and black-sand beaches. On your way up to Mount Pelee, you’ll come across natural wonders like waterfalls and enjoy panoramic views over the island. Accommodation can be found in all corners of Martinique, with a number of hotels, apartments and holiday homes available in Fort-de-France and Les Trois-Îlets.
