At the center of town is La Savane, a beautiful garden where you can grab a snack from one of the many vendors who line the edges of the park. This is the ideal spot to come after all of your sightseeing to sit back and take it easy.
Martinique's coasts offer many opportunities for water sports. Go snorkeling, diving, sailing, cruising, or fishing. Spend an hour or two in the ocean or a day on it. A game of extreme Marco Polo beckons.
Your best buys on Martinique are French luxury imports, such as perfumes, fashions, luggage, crystals and dinnerware. Sometimes prices are even as much as 30% to 40% below those in the United States!
You're usually better off shopping in the smaller stores, where prices are lower on comparable items, and paying in euros that you have exchanged at a local bank.
Dining here is a delightful experience. On every menu, fish is king. Try the red snapper, kingfish, or langouste (clawless Caribbean lobster) and you will be in culinary heaven. And most restaurants have exquisite wine selections. Trés bien!
The euro is the official currency in Martinique. U.S. dollars are accepted in some hotels, but generally at an unfavorable rate.
