Martinique is a small island located in the Southern Caribbean. Stunningly scenic and offering a real slice of Caribbean paradise, Christopher Columbus famously stated that Martinique was the “most beautiful country in the world”.
Guests who visit Martinique will undoubtedly fall in love with island’s strong French overtones, which weave there way into everything from the architecture (the island is home to an exact re-build of Paris’s Sacred Heart Basilica) to the delightful cuisine.
If relaxing on the beach whilst enjoying some glorious sunshine is a preference, then you’ll be pleased to know that Martinique can more than capably cater to your desires. Famed for its white-sand beaches and emerald green waters, it is recommended that cruisers check out both Anse Dufour and Cap Chevalier; two locations that encapsulate everything you’d expect from beaches in the Caribbean.
For discovery beyond the coastline, then venture to the north of Martinique and you’ll be surrounded by tropical forests and volcanic rock formations. Here you will find waterfalls, a myriad of colourful flowers and some exceptional hiking routes that lend themselves excellently to leisurely exploration.
Cruise lines including Compagnie du Ponant, Star Clippers and SeaDream Yacht Club all offer Martinique cruises and as such it’s the perfect destination for lovers of small-ship luxury cruising.
