Martinique is full of sensational landscapes, between paradise beaches with white or black sand and invigorating rivers, arid hiking trails, and lush vegetation barely letting the sun filter, cities that sweat from a past rich in history, and mountain ensuring that it never goes out.
It is also a cultural destination. With its various rums and its heritage linked to the colonization, the little-known tradition of the Bèlè, the traditional and epic “Tour de la Martinique des Yoles rondes” which reminds us that it is an island of sailors, its various festivals that bring people together, its markets whose scents confirm extremely rich gastronomy and a conviviality characteristic of Martinique.
The gastronomy of Martinique is varied and serves as a witness to the history of the island and its inhabitants, with Caribbean influences (such as chicken buccaneers), European, African (brought by slaves), and Indians (from Indian immigration), always adapted to the products of the island.
It is also known for the musical genre called Zouk, but there are other traditional kinds of music such as biguine, mazurka, or Creole waltz, or other genres that are becoming more and more famous such as reggae and dancehall.
Behind the postcards are the complex and exciting historical and social realities that make Martinique past and present.
