The Paris of the Caribbean

Soak up the charming mix of French flair and laid-back Caribbean vibes when you experience a Martinique yacht charter. This picturesque island lays between St. Lucia and Dominica in the Lesser Antilles. Martinique was formed by volcanic activity, which has created one of a kind landscapes including black sand beaches and tropical rainforests. Martinique’s cultural melting pot seamlessly blends French culture with local island charm, making it a top destination among fashionistas, hikers, and sailors.

Fuelled by rich volcanic soil, Martinique features a lush rainforest covering mountains and set behind beautiful beaches. With an average temperature of 75-86˚F and consistent trade winds blowing in from the northeast, sailors will enjoy a tropical climate and ideal cruising conditions. Anchorages and stopovers are easy to navigate with line of sight cruising, with plenty of mooring buoys available.
