Fifty Shades of Blue

When the blue of the sky and that of the glimmering sea merge together on the horizon, the spectacle is simply unforgettable.
Depending on where you are, the time of day and the intensity of the sun, the sea will delight you with an infinite array of shades of blue, from pale, almost-transparent turquoise to deep blue. Every beach, cove and bay has its own palette of colors for you to admire. There’s no getting enough of our sea views.
Like your sand white or black?
Martinique abounds with beaches, so there is something for every taste and desire, from tiny, pristine coves in secluded locations amidst lush vegetation to endless, palm-fringed stretches of white sand caressed by translucent waters. On the island of flowers, it is as if beaches come à la carte. So will it be white, golden or black sand? Calm waters or exhilarating waves? A quiet or busier beach? Just take your pick!
The beauty of Martinique doesn’t stop with its heavenly beaches and postcard-perfect shores. In the perfectly silent world beneath water, a whole other spectacle awaits. The seas around the island are home to incredibly rich marine life (Martinique is a natural biosphere reserve) and offer ideal conditions for diving all year round.
Kit yourself out with fins, mask and tuba and set off to explore our sea floor and coral reefs that teem with tropical fish like clown fish, surgeon fish and parrot fish. Their stunning colors are a dazzling sight you just have to see. And if, by chance, you should cross paths with one of our majestic sea turtles, let it pass by peacefully and simply marvel at the magical sight.
On the island, you will find numerous diving clubs and dedicated professionals who will be pleased to provide you with organized and completely safe diving trips, with a fun and friendly atmosphere. When you dive with us, you will discover our precious marine world, exploring famous wrecks and well-known dive sites.
Where Land Meets
This narrow strip of sand is completely exposed for just a few weeks a year, connecting Martinique to Sainte Marie Island, a protected nature reserve. This rare curiosity of nature – there are only five such sites in the world – is an occasional spectacle not to be missed.
This small uninhabited islet in Sainte-Anne has a remarkable rectangular shape. It owes its name to its table-top-like summit and the numerous reefs which surround it, making it extremely perilous to approach.
This emblematic rock formation lies off the south coast of Martinique, opposite the village of the same name (Le Diamant). It is famed for its history and its shape resembling – you’ve guessed it – a diamond, particularly when it shimmers in the glimmering sunlight.
This fascinating land formation is over 30 million years old. With a headland stretching a dozen kilometers into the sea, it is an extremely popular site for hiking and nature observation, offering absolutely unbelievable views.
