The volcanic geology of Martinique has produced magnificent black sand beaches along with white sand beaches and a charming small town to choose each day’s activities. Perhaps RumFest will be one of them.
Since 1635, the island has followed French slavery, sugar plantations, and Creolization.
The many white sand beaches are counterbalanced with fabulous black sand beaches at Anse Noire.
Saint Pierre sits in a curved bay bordered by a gray sand beach, the perfect landmark.
In 1902, nearly 40,000 people perished after the Mount Pelee eruption, leaving only 2 survivors.

This charming French island is known for its influential forms of Afro-Creole-Caribbean music.
Major celebrations occur during Carnival, Ash Wednesday, RumFest, Victory Day, and Slavery Abolition Day.
