Market Day in Le Marin

That said, Martinique miss some of the real Caribbean charm and feel that you find further south. Even the buildings look more European than Caribbean. It is after all France and EU for the good and the bad. Here we indulge in French cheese and wine, but miss the fishermen coming in their small boats to sell their catch, sometimes live lobster for 8 € a kilo! You simply have to enjoy what is best in the island you currently visit…..
