Variety Makes Martinique Beaches Très Bon

Most any mainstream listing of the best Caribbean beach destinations likely won’t include Martinique. The island’s volcanic makeup yields some of the region’s most exotic shores. Colors stretch from black to silver-grey, grey to brownish-tan, tan to white and back again. Some Martinique beaches, like Grand Anse du Diamant pictured here, feature several shades of multiple colors. These can vary according to the seasons, tides, and storms, creating a new beach experience with every visit. It’s just this sort of wild variety that makes Martinique beaches among the best for me, and why I can’t wait to get back here this summer.
