Volcanic in origin, Martinique is a mountainous dreamboat, offering a stunning array of diverse landscapes.

Have you ever hiked an active volcano? Well, get your boots ready because we will be conquering Mont Pelee during our Martinique fitness retreat! This awe-inspiring site scrapes clouds at an elevation of over 4,500 feet. Although active, Mt. Pelee has been dormant since last erupting in 1932. The site also lays claim to beautifully wooded forests and cascading waterfalls to make for an experience like no other.
The picturesque Jardin de Balata or Balata Gardens is a private garden located roughly 10 km outside of Fort-de-France. Jean-Phillippe Thoze started the garden in 1982 but did not open it to the public until 1986. The garden is home to over 3,000 tropical plants and more than 300 varieties of palm trees. Visitors have daily access to the wonderfully crafted garden that simultaneously serves as a unique meditation destination and a photography lovers dream haven.
Les Salines beach is home to clear and calm waters. Endless palm trees shade the glistening sand that covers the marvelous coastline. Visit this soothing destination on your free day and soak in the sun on one of Martinique’s most famous beaches.
