My favourite beach is Anse Dufour. This spot is part of a fishing village in the south of the island so it’s very authentic and amazing. I love to go there by boat to go snorkelling and watch marine turtles and a multitude of fish species – it’s where you can really admire our diverse marine life.
In Martinique, we’re lucky to benefit from great biodiversity. Close to Fort De France, you can explore some trails in the rainforest.
I recommend our local rum as it’s an extremely high-quality product boasting an “AOC” label – a unique appellation of rum, similar to wines and spirits, that demonstrates a ‘controlled designation of origin’. You’ll also find some interesting handicrafts at the local market in Fort de France.
"As you walk in the exceptionally peaceful tropical forest, you’re immersed in the song of the birds, surrounded by a multitude of botanical species, including ferns, mahogany trees, balisier flowers and many exotic plants."
I love everything about Martinique’s cuisine with its mix of African, European and Indian influences. If I have to choose something, I love the convivial, friendly moment of a ‘Ti punch’ aperitif – its zesty flavour goes perfectly with our local salt cod fritters.
You’ll find a wealth of cultural and historical experiences in St Pierre or Fort De France. St Pierre is very popular due to its exceptional history – throughout the 19th century, it was known as the little Paris of the Caribbean before it was completely destroyed in 1902.
I’m proud of so many things but, for me, it must be its diversity. The island’s history and numerous influences are things all visitors will appreciate when exploring Martinique’s culture and heritage.
