Martinique is one of the most unique destinations in the Caribbean thanks to its French Creole history. The best time to visit Martinique is either May or June, but there is a chance of hurricanes in summer. Capital city is safe and friendly. On one side of Martinique rests the Caribbean Sea, on the other the Atlantic Ocean. Shores offer you sand that is soft and white. Francophiles adore the French island for its gastromony, its music and élan, and the availability of the finest French products.
