Martinique: a French take on tropical rainforests and Caribbean beaches

Packages to Martinique will not be offered during the 2022-2023 winter season.

Can’t decide between Europe and the Caribbean this year? Martinique combines both with panache. Sample cutting-edge French cuisine overlooking white-sand beaches. Ask an honest-to-goodness gendarme for directions from your hotel to the island’s still-smouldering volcano and hike through a tropical rainforest all in the same day.

Martinique is the Caribbean destination that has been named gold winner by Travel Weekly 2021 Magellan Awards in the category of eco-friendly destinations.

Martinique Your Way

Keep things hot by mixing it up seaside—not all beaches are created equal in Martinique. Choose from black sands at Anse Couleuvre or white at Les Salines, one of the island’s most popular sunbathing spots. Fonds Blancs is like a sandbank swimming pool in the sea. Legend has it that island native Empress Josephine would take her baths here. Sway together to the intoxicating beat of the bèlè, Martinique’s traditional drum, at La Maison du Bèlè. Listen to a tanbouyé rap out the distinctive tak-pi-tak-pi-tak as you dance, or take one of the courses offered and learn to play yourself.
Family playgrounds
Mangofil Martinique offers courses for children as well as adults, so the whole family can have fun ziplining, rope swinging and tightrope walking from tree to tree.
Travelling with friends
Hike to the top of Mont Pelée, the island’s volcano that last erupted in 1902. Currently quiescent, it offers jaw-dropping views of the Atlantic and surrounding mountains. Rent a car and drive into the heart of the island on Route de la Trace, a road that heads north from Fort-de-France into the hills and rainforest. Be ready for the odd tropical cloudburst, and bring waterproof boots if you plan to get out and walk.

  • Eight reasons to visit Martinique

    By MARIE-JULIE GAGNON / 15 December 2015
    Preparing for a trip to Martinique is like getting ready to go to Europe. Don’t expect the prices of the Dominican Republic or Cuba: this island may be located in the Lesser Antilles, but it’s actually part of France. Bordered on one side by the Caribbean Sea and on the other by the Atlantic Ocean, this European territory has its own attractive features that set it apart from the motherland: temperatures rarely below 22 degrees, lush vegetation, a fascinating cultural melting-pot, an approximate flight distance of 4.5 hours from Montreal and no jetlag to deal with! Still not convinced? Here are more reasons I fell for the Island of Flowers.

  • Martinique Tourism: A Taste of France in Paradise

    By CEDRIC LIZOTTE / 16 October 2015
    Martinique tourism is full of dichotomies: European standards with a Caribbean approach; well-maintained roads with creole rhythms; plenty of French food with gorgeous tropical beaches and landscapes.

Good to know

Presence of Sargassum in Mexico and the Caribbean
Depending on the weather conditions, winds and tides may bring large quantities of Sargassum to shore. Since seaweed moves with the ocean currents, quantities may vary by place and day. Transat would like to inform its clients that this natural phenomenon beyond its control affects several parts of Mexico and the Caribbean. Although the presence of this brown seaweed is greater than usual, our hotel partners are making every effort to clean the beaches when necessary.
