Martinique Vacation Guides: The People

The island of Martinique has a population of almost half a million people, most of whom are French citizens. This island differs from many of the other Caribbean islands in that the official language spoken here is French and the official currency is the Euro. This is because, like Guadeloupe, it is an overseas department of France.

Martinique Information: Natural Beauty

The island has mountainous, volcanic terrain in the interior, and mangroves and white sand beaches at the coast. There is an abundant amount of animal and plant life living in the various types of forests found at different altitudes.

Martinique boasts beautiful clear water and abundant fish life that make it a perfect destination for swimmers, snorkelers, spear fishermen, and divers. White and black sand beaches surround the islands and provide the perfect backdrop for a picture perfect Caribbean vacation.

The capital of Martinique, Fort-de-France, is a beautiful little town with hints of French architecture and many building painted in bright tropical colors and a rainbow of pastels. Fort-de-France offers a number of restaurants dishing up delicious local food often containing ingredients such as rum, pineapple, coconut, curry, or wine and local vegetables and fruit.
