Fort de France, on the island of Martinique makes for a fantastic day off the ship and has something for all tastes.
Located in the East Caribbean, Martinique is a Mecca for tourists who are drawn by its stunning natural beauty. The volcanic landscapes, with sugar, palm, banana and pineapple plantations that roll down to sandy beaches of white and black sand are just some of the reasons why Christopher Columbus claimed that Martinique was ‘the most beautiful country in the world’ when he landed here in 1493.
All holiday makers to Fort de France love the captivating mix of French and Creole cultures. Here, in the capital city, Parisian chic meets a laid back Caribbean vibe. You can find fashionable French brands in the stylish boutiques as well as vibrant covered markets where the melodies of French folk music mingle with the sounds of local zouk.
There is as much to do off the island as in Fort de France itself; choose from a range of water activities from snorkelling to kayaking. Architecture fans will appreciate the replica of Paris’ Sacred Heart Basilica whilst art lovers will be thrilled with the Paul Gauguin museum.
