Amidst the forests flow... Rivers

There are many of them, winding from north to south across the island. But the big stars are our impressive waterfalls and their natural pools, where you can cool off in complete tranquillity.

When you step into the heart of nature, you'll discover that Martinique's flora and fauna are nothing short of extraordinary. Come and meet the animal species that inhabit our forests and contribute greatly to this unique and exotic soundscape: birds, lizards and even frogs in some places.

On foot or by kayak, come and observe the different species of mangrove: these surprising trees with their intertwined roots are the only ones able to grow in this environment. A natural barrier against erosion, the mangrove is also a haven for many species: crabs, birds and juvenile fish.

Martinique at UNESCO

Following the inclusion of the yawl as a Unesco intangible heritage site in 2020, Martinique's entire land and sea territory will be recognized as a World Biosphere Reserve in 2021, by UNESCO's International Committee of the Man and the Biosphere Program. A prestigious world title that illustrates the determination and commitment of the people of Martinique.
