La Martinique

The contrasts on the 73 kilometer long and 39 kilometer wide island of the Lesser Antilles could not be greater: In the north, around the volcano Mont Pélée, tropical forests and black sandy beaches take turns while dozens of rivers flow down the slopes of the highest mountain of the island before they meet the rainforest at the foot of the volcano. The south, on the other hand, is characterized by golden sandy beaches, many small islands and countless bays. Gourmets taste the local Creole cuisine and of course the rum. The eleven active distilleries in Martinique are the only ones worldwide with the distinction “A.O.C.” – Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée – which is actually reserved to French wines of outstanding quality.
