A slightly sun burnt face, sand between my toes, and the smell of the ocean as the intense summer’s heat dances around me, I quickly realized these are the sensations of life that I adore. The sea is calm, the sand a bit disheveled, and the breeze is friendly on what seems to be windless day… this is truly a beauteous morning on the island of La Martinique.
PARADISE IS PERSONAL
Stunning beaches and inspired cuisine, spiced with a West Indian charm, makes the island of Martinique a new sought after destination for many. Here’s why:
Along the southern tip of the island, there’s a plethora of white sand beaches dotted along the Caribbean coast, which serves as your reminder that you took these precious days in Martinique to recharge… consider Trois-lletes your outlet. There’s a variety of activities just a few steps away along the Pointe du Bout waterfront – fly board, jet-packs, fly fish, parasailing, and boat rentals!
Anse Mitan Beach
With panoramic views of the capital city Fort-de-France in the backdrop, Anse Mitan Beach is dotted with palm trees and rigid coves perfect for sunbathing and snorkeling. You’ll have the area mostly to yourself on the weekdays and early mornings. However, beware of crowds during the latter part of the weekends. There’s a restaurant and bar along the beach and a variety of alternative options a short walking distance away.
Grab a group of friends and your favorite bottle of champagne and set sail along the Caribbean coast and make your way to several impeccably groomed beaches and the famous Diamond Rock. I recommend contacting Loic from Matinik Croisieres to arrange your trip.
