Ports

Fort-de-France is the capital of Martinique, a curious mixture of European and Caribbean temperament and has a wonderful climate. It is one of the largest cities in the Caribbean, so you’ll find plenty to see and do as you explore the streets. But don’t limit yourself to the city – Martinique is stunning in its beauty, with rainforests, dormant volcanoes, and beaches in all sizes. Wearing a Panama hat is allowed, and don’t forget to sample the local cuisine… it’s like ‘ouh-la-la’, but with rum!

Marigot is the main city of the French part of Saint Martin island in the Caribbean. Climb up to Fort Louis if you like history or hike the Paradise Peak if you're more of a nature lover. For a little tasto of local culture visit the Museum of Saint Martin and Roland Richardson Art Gallery. Spend a relaxing afternoon on one of the beautiful beaches and enjoy all kinds of watersports.
