Welcome to Martinique

Martinique, overseas department of France, is a mountainous island lying in the Lesser Antilles. Its nearest neighbours are the island republics of Dominica to the north-west, and Saint Lucia to the south.

The main island is dominated by three mountains, an active volcano, Mount Pelée to the north; the Carbet Mountains in the centre; and Mount Vauclin, in the south. The northern coastline of Martinique is has steep cliffs; while in the south, the cliffs are replaced by beautiful beaches.

Martinique is great for a beach and snorkeling holiday, great hiking through the rainforest in the Pitons du Carbet and great culinary experiences.
