Martinique. Pop - 401,000. Area - 1,128 km². Capital - Fort-de-France. Largest City – Fort-de-France. Currency – Euro. Language – French and Antillean Creole. Main Religions – Roman Catholic. Time Zone – GMT - 4 hours. Main Airport – Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport FDF. Climate – tropical with 2 seasons, dry summer and rainy winter. Voltage guide 220V. Dialing code 596. Martinique is located in the eastern Caribbean and is an overseas department of France. As it is part of France, Martinique also uses the Euro as its official currency. The north of the island is hilly with luxuriant forests. A notable mountain in this area is Mount Pelée, which is still registered as an active volcano. The volcanic ash from this region has made striking grey and black sand beaches (in particular between Anse Ceron and Anse des Gallets), contrasting markedly from the white sands of Les Salines in the south of the island. The south is an easier area to navigate, and tends to attract more tourists who usually gravitate to the beaches from Pointe de Bout, through Diamant (which features right off the coast the beautiful Roche de Diamant), St. Luce, the town of St. Anne, and all the way down to Les Salines. Another unique feature of Martinique is the cuisine which is a blend of French and Creole cooking. A speciality is Colombo, a unique curry of chicken(curry chicken), meat or fish with vegetables, spiced with a distinctive masala of Bengali or Tamil origins, and often containing wine, coconut milk, and rum.
