WHEN TO GO
Martinique sits firmly in the tropics so has two clear seasons. During the dry season (from December to May) the weather is calm with temperatures averaging about 26 degrees. The wet season runs from June to November and – although it’s called ‘wet’ – is generally characterised by short, sharp showers. This can be a great time to visit as the golf course, spas, and beaches are quieter and more relaxed. To see the country at it’s busiest and brightest, time your travels to coincide with Martinique’s carnival – a four-day celebration, just before Lent.
This small island is alive with music – make sure you catch a performance of local favourites, zouk or bèlè.
