Martinique Yacht Charter, Caribbean

View yacht charters for Martinique

Martinique is a great yacht charter destination in the eastern Caribbean Sea and is the largest in the Windward Islands yacht charter area with a land area of 1,128 km2 (436 sq mi). Like Guadeloupe, Martinique is an overseas region of France, and as such has strong French influences with Parisian style bistros and quaint narrow streets. Martinique lies to the south of Dominica and north of St Lucia.

Known as Madinina, or Island of Flowers, Martinique, is renowned for its scenic beauty. The island is home to countless varieties of plants, trees and flowers. It is a festival of hibiscus, frangipani, bougainvillea, poinsettias and nearly 100 species of orchid. The 425-square-mile island is speckled with plantations producing guavas, mangos, papayas, bananas, pineapples, sugar, cinnamon and coffee.

A good place to start your yacht charter vacation around Martinique is Fort de France. The charming capital is built overlooking the magnificent yacht filled marina. From you berth, you can glance up into the narrow streets of the decidedly French town. Fill your galley fridge with treats for your yacht charter holiday from the Parisian style bistros and fresh fish and vegetable markets.

A great way to see St. Pierre is to take the Cyparis Express, a charming little train that offers tours of the area. The impact of the eruption can also be seen beneath the seas, with twelve wrecks to dive offshore. In and around Martinique, the shoreline is just as spectacular and interesting as the sites onshore. Explore the trio of stunning coves at Les Anses-d'Arlets. Sail in the shadow of the towering fortress of Diamond Rock, the Caribbean Gibraltar rising 600 feet from the sea. Enjoy the tranquillity of two miles of perfect sand on the southern beach of Grand Anse des Salines.

Martinique has a spirited Mardi Gras Carnival during a five-day period each February -March. The streets fill with rum-fuelled revellers and there are costume parades, music and dancing with much of the activity centred around La Savane in Fort-de-France.

Saint-Pierre commemorates the 8th of May eruption of Mont Pelée with live jazz and a candlelight procession from the cathedral.

Music lovers can enjoy the biennial week-long Martinique Jazz Festival, held in December on odd-numbered years, or the guitar festival held on even-numbered years.

Martinique also has several major sporting events, such as the Tour de la Martinique, a week-long bicycle race held in mid-July, the Tour des Yoles Rondes, a week-long race of traditional sailboats held in early August and a semi-marathon around Fort-de-France in November.

Martinique is gaining increasing popularity as a top yacht charter destination and all the main types of yacht charter are available such as motor, sailing, classic charter, skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, luxury yachts and superyacht charters.

Once you've exhausted the charming sites of Martinique, take your crewed yacht charter in another direction. Experience the excitement of blue-water sailing by heading north to Dominica or south to St. Lucia and the Grenadines.
