is an island in the Caribbean being the overseas region of France. It is beautiful, safe and relatively inexpensive. It is common to believe, that Martinique beaches
are very good. In fact, it is not quite like this. Of course, there are several outstanding locations - with the church, with palms and with the Fort. But if you roam randomly along the coast, the overall result will be even worse than in Guadeloupe. However, the whole Martinique is much more cozy and manicured. The lawns are trimmed everywhere, there are a lot of good restaurants along nice promenades, while the hotels are much more upscale compared to those in Guadeloupe. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. 
Rooms' fares in Martinique hotels start from as low as US$50, while quite decent options can be found for about US$100 per night. Please, keep in mind that, there are no classic beach resorts on the island. However, there are a lot of great apartments and B & B. Find hotels in Martinique
How to get there 
Fly to Martinique International Airport (FDF)
. Next hire a taxi. Or it is even better to rent a car right in the airport.
But if for some reason, you are not going to drive a car, then your should be ready to suffer. Taxi is expensive on the island. For example, taxi meter from the airport to St. Anne is about 85 euros, or 50 euros if ordered in advance.
As for a public transportation, Martinique is even worse compared to the notorious Guadeloupe.
The only comfortable transportation is from the airport to the capital town of Fort de France - both there and back way. A bus runs on a schedule about once every 50 minutes, while ticket costs 1.5 euros only.
Tickets for all other routes will cost from 2 to 10 euros, and you will wait from 1 to 4 hours. The problem is that buses in Martinique run on schedule, but very rarely.
There is also extended shuttle minibus service (so-called "taxico"), but they leave only after being completely packed by passengers. So it's not a problem to depart from the central station of Fort de France. But minibuses skip all intermediate stops, since the cabin is already filled by the passengers!
That's why, a usual journey to the capital and back may take the whole day. Please also note that, there are usually no problems in the morning. All problems begin in the afternoon! Do you need it? No, you don't! Forget about public transport in Martinique. Consider that, it is not exists. Find flights to Martinique
