MARTINIQUE
Click for Caravelle, Martinique Forecast




Mount Pelee towers above the island of Martinique, in the West Indies. Since 1902, it is one of the most famous volcanos on Earth; its eruption led to the destruction of the entire city of Saint-Pierre, with its 28,000 inhabitants.

Martinique is the largest of the the islands in the French West Indies at 425 square miles, and is a mix of cosmopolitan cities, rural fishing villages, remarkably beautiful beaches, and tropical rain forests. Visitors will find plenty of activities to fill each day. More than a hundred miles of marked trails wind through the island. The Parc Naturel protects much of the forest and offers fabulous hiking, including the popular Trace des Jésuites. Those who prefer to drive will enjoy La Route de la Trace, an excellent road that cuts across interior mountains covered in luxuriant foliage.

Beaches along the southern coast have white-sand and calm Caribbean water for swimming and sunning. On the Atlantic side, black-sand beaches provide protected coves and good waves for watersports. Reefs along the southwestern coast make for interesting snorkeling and divers can explore sunken ships in Saint-Pierre Harbor. Fishing is a way of life on Martinique and the deep Gulf Stream waters are filled with game fish.
