On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, France
has an exotic air. The people there live to the rhythm of zouk music. It is often said that they are not very welcoming, but that is not true! As kind as any other, they love their island and want it to be respected. One tends to forget their history marked by slavery and suffering but also strength and courage. Having these values in mind before setting foot on the 'Flower Island
' will allow you to understand it better. This land of many hiking tracks, particularly around Mount Pelée
, offers beautiful greenery. Only now do we hear about its nature, because last time that there was a major marketing campaign for Martinique as a tourist destination it was marketed for its beaches. Martinique was not sold well; it is a fact that the beaches are not as you would expect them, they are rather short. The beaches of Anse Michel however should be kept in mind, without forgetting the coast and creeks of Cape Chevalier. It is worth going all around the island, from north to south, from Sainte-Marie to Basse-Pointe, via the peaceful, timeless villages
of Tartane, Le François, le Diamant, les Anses d'Arlet, Trois-Ilets and Saint-Pierre.
