Balata Garden

Jardin de Balata is a botanical garden created by the poet and horticulturalist Jean-Philippe Thoze, who designed the space to reflect his childhood memories and celebrate Martinique’s natural beauty. The traditional Creole house at the center of the garden also offers views of the ocean, lush jungle, and giant palm trees.

Banana Museum

Set among the lush trees of a banana plantation, the Banana Museum (Le Musée de la Banane) on Martinique traces the origin, growth, and trading history of one of the world’s most popular crops. Learn everything you could possibly want to know about bananas, from the stages of ripeness to many fruit’s health benefits.

Fonds Blancs

Fonds Blancs boasts a white sandbar surrounded by a coral reef and an ocean of turquoise water. Tourists and locals alike visit to swim and snorkel. Be sure to ask your tour agency about snorkel gear before going, because you will not want to miss the area's exotic marine life.
