Why Visit Martinique

Bordered to the west by the Caribbean Sea and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, Martinique is an island with an incredible amount to offer.

One of the best reasons to visit is its tropical climate – in Martinique, the weather is hot and sunny all year round. You can enjoy the island’s beauty during the dry season, from December to May, or during the wetter season, from June to November.

Whether you are an adventure lover or you like taking life easy on the beach, Martinique is a rich island with a wide variety of scenery to enjoy. You can’t fail to love its many facets.

You can explore wild, black sand beaches with crystal-clear waters or dive among multi-colored fish at hidden coves of white sand tucked between the cliffs.

If nature and adventure are your thing, Martinique’s unparalleled plant and animal life and incredible hikes through forests, waterfalls, gardens and lush, bright green hills will soon have you charmed.

Culture buffs will love discovering the historic buildings, intellectual heritage and colorful food that make our island what it is.

Getting around in Martinique

The best way to get around Martinique is by car. You can rent a car anywhere on the island, especially around Fort de France.

Martinique has a very good road network. The roads are sometimes winding and steep due to its many reliefs. We don't recommend two-wheelers, as cars are well suited to driving in Martinique. 

You can also take a cab, but the best alternative remains the collective cab, also known as "taxicos". A true means of public transport on the island, they serve all the communes of Martinique and run between 6 and 18 hours every day, except Sundays.
