What Fort-de-France has to offer?
A Colourful Trip
Need a little sun and adventure? Pack your bags and hop on your flight from Nantes to Fort-de-France, Martinique. In 8 hours, you’ll be strolling through the city’s vibrant streets, admiring the architecture of the Saint-Louis Cathedral and the impressive Schoelcher Library. Why is Martinique known as the ‘Island of Flowers’? The answer lies up above in the treetops, which you’ll be able to see first-hand on the hanging bridges in the Botanical Garden in Balata.
Rum and Spice to Tantalise your Tastebuds
To find that delicious, nose-tickling smell, head to the Grande Marche. Amongst the colourful stalls, you’ll find creole spices, fruits and vegetables and of course, rum arrangé. Take your tastebuds on an adventure with must-try specialities such as banana gratin, codfish accras and Chicken boucané. And don’t forget to bring vanilla and dried pepper back in your suitcase!
The unique cuisine of Martinique
Get your walking shoes on and explore the natural landscape of Martinique. A hike between the forests, mangroves and cliffs in the Caravelle peninsula will give you a little preview. Then take a trip to the mysterious, desert-like Savane des Pétrifiactions. The adventure-seekers among you can climb Mount Pelée, a volcano in the north of the island which stands at a height of 1397m. Breathtaking views out of this world are guaranteed!
Head Underwater, Feet on Sand
Who says Martinique is only about cocktails, coconut trees and beaches? With more than a hundred beaches on the island, you can simply choose between swimming in the turquoise water of the Anse Noir, surfing along the Diamant Beach, or the sunset at the Grande Anse de Salines. Picturesque scenes guaranteed! The clear sea makes it ideal for swimming with rays, turtles and for going on dives to the bottom of the sea in search of shipwrecks.
