Martinique, which is part of the Windward Islands, is a unique place in terms of both its geography and culture. Two major bodies of water, the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, border it and because of this it has two distinctly different types of beach. Martinique is a tiny island of only 420sq miles and its land is varied, with large sections being flat and others mountainous.
The best time to visit the island is between November and May, when the temperatures are in the 70° to 80°F and nights are only slightly cooler, between 60° and 70°F. July to November is the rainy season and hurricanes are always possible during this period.
