Martinique Travel Inspiration
Have you ever dreamed of eating croissants while sitting on the beach? Well, the French Caribbean island of Martinique is the place for you! Thanks to a Norwegian flight deal in March 2016, I was able to venture to the island for some much needed reprieve from Boston’s winter blues. (Note: That’s why the photos are not as high resolution; technology changes quickly!)
With a fantastic combination of a commanding volcano, sugar cane and banana fields, and white-sand beaches, Martinique is a special island that provides you the French culture without crossing the Atlantic. Mont Pelée hasn’t erupted since it wiped out the island in 1902 allowing the island to become a grand destination for hiking, cuisine, and relaxing. Even though most Americans are not familiar with the island, over one million visitors journey to the island each year, and I thoroughly enjoyed the lack of English-speaking tourists. Pro tip: Learn the essential French phrases as you’ll need it in local shops and restaurants.
