Things to Do in Martinique
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.
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.
