Martinican cuisine is a culinary fusion drawing on French savoir-faire, African generosity, a medley of spices from India and a chorus of other Caribbean and European influences. This cuisine is generous and multifaceted, with intriguing specialties such as Colombo curry, codfish Accras, pâté-en-pot stew and fish blaff.
Martinique rums are the only rums awarded the prestigious label Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC). The island has a total of 11 distilleries producing many varieties of rum which are distinguished by a unique rhum agricole production technique, employed by the island’s distillers for centuries.
Martinique counts hundreds of fabulous, well-protected diving spots and more than 40 diving clubs to explore magical coral reefs on the seabed.

The Slave Memorial at Anse Cafard is an absolute must-see for any visitor. Twenty white colossal statues facing the famous Diamond Rock commemorate the slave ship that sank there in 1830. With its ocean backdrop, it's one of the most impressive and moving memorials in the Caribbean. Another must-see is the Slave Savannah in Trois-Ilets.
Mount Pelée Volcano destroyed Saint-Pierre, the first capital city of Martinique, in 1902. The remaining charred building facades, including a church and 18th-century theater, hint at the sophistication of Saint-Pierre, also known as “the Paris of the Caribbean.” Today, the rebuilt city honors its fiery past at the Musée Volcanologique. Modern art is also honoring Saint-Pierre with 32 giant totems created by Caribbean artists.
