Due to the time difference and the time of adaptation to the tropical climate, two weeks in Martinique seem to be a very good formula. This duration will allow you to combine discovering Martinican culture with long afternoons of relaxation, sea trips and snorkeling, gastronomic discoveries and sporting activities. A very nice stay in perspective, in short.

Details of the stay: Two weeks under the Martinique sun - 13 days

Day 1 : Arrival in Martinique

You arrive at the Lamentin Airport. You may be exhausted by the trip and you have only one idea: go to your resort. A good shower, a welcome it-punch and a bed.

Day 2 : C. Relaxation and preparation

Wake up to sunrise at 6 pm. After a night of sleep, you are in full shape: enjoy the pleasure of tropical wellness. The sky is blue with a high brightness. We suggest you enjoy the hotel (relax, swimming pool, beach) and take your cue in order to organize your week.

Day 3 : Leeward Coast - Day 1

You are getting used to jet lag. Take the opportunity to leave early in the morning to discover the west coast known as the "leeward" coast. Go up the South Caribbean coast, stop in the village Anses d'Arletfor breakfast. Then head for Fort-de-France for an afternoon of shopping in the picturesque market of the capital, before reaching Anse Madame beach to admire the sunset

Day 4 : Leeward Coast - Day 2

Head north to the Preacher. Visit the Balata Botanical Garden and have lunch on Carbet Beach. In the afternoon, make a stop in Saint-Pierre, then turn off again by the Morne-Rouge road via the Trace tropical forest, which goes down to Fort-de-France. Simply grandiose

Day 5 : Leeward Coast - Day 1

You start in Le Vauclin, an adorable village of authentic fishermen. Continue through Le François (essential stop to observe the elegant Habitation Clément) then Le Robert and the Caravelle peninsula. Eat at Mamy Nounou's in Tartane and then attack the North Atlantic. In Sainte-Marie, visit the cemetery, the Rum or Banana Museum.

Day 6 : Wind Coast - Day 2

Visit of Marigot, Lorrain, then Macouba, where you will discover in the morning the JM Distillery. In the afternoon, direction Grand-Rivière and its cliffs at the end of the world, with Dominica in the distance pointing out the end of its nose. Treat yourself to a good coconut ice cream here before going back to your steps. After Le Lorrain, take the road that goes to Morne-des-Esses and Saint-Joseph to finish the day. Return to your place of residence.

Day 7 : White Background Day

Head east for a day "with white bottoms". Everything is in the name: they are sandy and shallow bottoms located all along the Atlantic coast between Le Robert and Cap-Chevalier. Leaving Martinique without having had a drink (preferably rum) sitting in the water and far from the coast... is a waste! Many companies organize this type of excursion: departure in the morning around 9am, discovery of the islets, comments on the vegetation, stop for a swim and baptism of rum at the famous "white bottoms", lunch and return in the late afternoon.

Day 8 : 4 x 4 excursion

Thanks to the island's topography and climate, many providers organize 4 x 4 rides. This is a rather original way to explore the island, and generally, the formula likes. Two circuits and two different concepts are proposed: the North or the South. For authenticity and tropical forest, prefer the North.

Day 9 : Sports day - 1

You can devote the next two days to sports activities: scuba diving (1/2 day), water scooter rides (1/2 day) or canoeing on the Robert, François, Trois-Îlets or Cap-Chevalier sides, but also windsurfing in Cap-Chevalier, flying over the countryside by plane or helicopter, canyoning... There are many possibilities.

Day 10 : Sport Day - 2

Second active day. Take advantage of the activity of your choice. Enjoy a wonderful day to relax on the beach.

Day 11 : Day at sea: South coast or Saint Lucia

Day charter day, which means a sea trip on board a boat, often "maxi-catamarans". Departures are available from Les Trois-Îlets, Le Marin or Sainte-Anne. The most classic tour is the South Caribbean coast and for sea lovers, the day trip to Saint Lucia (English-speaking island to the south). Departure around 9am and return at sunset. Lunch on board, swimming stops with the possibility of snorkeling

Day 12 : Cultural day

Dedicating a day to local culture is not too much. To do so, you can visit one of the famous Martinican distilleries in the morning. Tour of the Maison de la Canne museum in the afternoon, before attending a cockfight in a pitt, near Rivière-Pilote.

Day 13 : Departure

That is already the departure. Most flights are fixed late in the afternoon. Some accommodation facilities allow you to change before departure at the airport by providing a luggage storage and showers. This is an advantage because you can take full advantage of your last moments on the island, providing for a swim for example.
