Welcome To Martinique
Martinique is technically a colony of France, so you’ll be able to use Euros while you’re there. Additionally, nearly everyone speaks French, along with a little bit of English.
Fort De France is the largest city of Martinique, so it has the most sights and attractions on the island. You’ll be quite hot year-round, so be sure to pack light clothing as well as a raincoat if you plan on visiting from July to November.
The main sights of Fort De France are the Fort Saint Louis, the Schoelcher Library, the botanical gardens, and the endless beaches. Dip into a local restaurant for some quality creole food with an extra dollop of French flair, and be sure to check out the replica of the Montmartre Church in the cliffs.
If nature walks are your thing, you’re in great luck: Fort De France is mere steps from the hilly tropical forest that dominate Martinique. Though you may find a village or two in the forests, for the most part, these areas are protected wilderness, so leave no trace and remember to be respectful.
