Best Things To Do in Martinique

Breathtaking natural beauty is Martinique's claim to fame, but no coast offers quite the same scenery. The north is both rugged and lush, with the majestic Mont Pelée volcano commanding the view. Southern Martinique is calmer, romantic and characterized by brilliant white sand beaches. Central on the west coast, urban Fort-de-France is bursting with spectacular historic and cultural sites. Make sure to put that area's Schoelcher Library at the top of your sightseeing list.
