Green tourism is booming on the island and this can be understood when we know that our island is covered by forests (72% of its area). Martinique is a real land suitable for hiking where you can indulge in this passion in settings, each more original than the next. The different views that you will have during the hikes will not leave you indifferent. So don't forget your sneakers and backpack when you stay here.
And what would our island be without history. Formerly populated by the Arawak Indians and then the Caribbean Indians (Visit to the Ecomuseum), Martinique was revealed to Europe by the various conquests carried out in the area. If Christopher Columbus landed on the island on June 15, 1502, it was the French who would be the first Europeans to really take an interest in it. This history which goes hand in hand with the slavery past of the island is still visible on many sites (among others Ruins of the Dubuc castle, Memorial Cap 110, distilleries of the island).
Do not forget either that by setting foot on the island you arrive on a land nicknamed the Island of Flowers. So you will not be surprised to see flowers everywhere you go, whether in natural places or when visiting markets and around distilleries, museums or others.
Martinique is a French island where you eat well. Our gastronomy is rich and mixes many different flavors inherited from its past and its mixture of cultures. Many restaurants will offer you a whole range of dishes prepared with local products.
Plus récemment c’est l’éruption de la Montagne Pelée en 1902 qui a transformé radicalement l’île. La ville de Saint-Pierre au sommet de sa gloire était déchue de son statut de capitale au profit de Fort-de-France et tous ses lieux mémorables que fréquentaient la bourgeoisie locale étaient réduits en ruines.
