Caribbean Islands - Martinique (Chapter)
This is the Martinique chapter from Lonely Planet’s Caribbean Islands guidebook.
Volcanic in origin, the island is a mountainous stunner crowned by the still-smoldering Mont Pelée, which wiped out Martinique’s former capital of St-Pierre in 1902. Long luscious beaches and giant mountains covered in tropical forests are the main attractions here.
- see the devastation of Mont Pelée firsthand in the former capital of St-Pierre, as the volcano broods in the distance
- wander one of the island’s most beautiful beaches, Les Salines
- restaurants & accommodations
- hike the dramatic 20km trail from Grand-Rivière to Anse Couleuvre along Martinique’s pristine northern coast
