Martinique Sailing Itinerary - South Route
Martinique is a tropical Caribbean paradise with a French and Caribbean fusion of cultures, with historic influences from both cultures. The island is mountainous with luscious green rainforest, along with extinct volcanoes, including Mont Pelee. Our Martinique Sailing Itinerary explores the best parts of the islands and the surrounding islands.
The island is often referred to as the "Isle of flowers", due to its floral and green natural ecosystems. Culture, colour and liveliness thrive throughout the island, with colourful festivals, music, dancing and delicious Creole cuisine all creating the perfect island vibe. Our Martinique Sailing Itinerary makes the most of all these traditions and cultures.
Our Guide to the Martinique Sailing Itinerary
Our Martinique Sailing Itinerary offers a unique and wonderful itinerary, helping you explore and discover the best Martinique has to offer, as well as the surrounding Caribbean islands.
The North Martinique Sailing Itinerary begins in Martinique and proceeds to Dominica and Guadeloupe.
You can fly to Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport (FDF), Fort-de France, from Miami or Fort Lauderdale. These two large American airports offer connecting flights from all over the world.
Marina moorings and anchorages are available throughout our Martinique Sailing Itinerary and in all of our recommended destinations and overnight stops. In our Martinique Sailing Itinerary, the overnight anchorages will always be in sheltered bays or coves, with either a sandy or muddy seabed, ideal for anchoring. Caution should be taken when throwing over an anchor to allow for the variation in the tide: the tide can go up and down between 10 and 50cm.
Martinique has a predominately subtropical climate, with average temperatures reaching between 19c to 30c during the day and between 17c and 21c in the evening. Between June and November, it is hurricane season, where winds may increase suddenly or without warning. Between December and June, winds tend to reach between 10-15mph and tend to come from an easterly direction.
