Waves breaking along the beaches, birds flying over a blue sky.... This paradisiacal setting seems like something out of a movie, but in Martinique this setting is a lifestyle. You've probably heard returns from the flower island, but what do you really know about the right time to discover it?
Although the beaches are crowded, the best time to discover Martinique is during the dry season, which runs from December to May, making Martinique the perfect escape from the freezing winter!
This is the low season. The best season for an excellent quality/price ratio!
According to Metric-conversion, the temperature in May in Martinique ranges from 23° to 31° degrees.at dawn, the temperature is around 27° degrees and will gradually rise during the day towards 30° degrees. Then, at the beginning of the evening, it goes back down to around 24° degrees.
The water temperature varies between 27° and 28° degrees. Enough to delight more than one!
It rains 13 days on average. However, as in July, precipitation occurs mainly around 5 p.m. or 8 a.m.
The average day lasts 12 hours and 50 minutes, with the sun rising around 5:35 am and setting at 6:21 pm. And yes, one of the advantages of traveling in the Caribbean is that the locals live during the day!
S’il n’y a qu’une fête à retenir au mois de mai, il s’agit de la commémoration de l’abolition de l’esclavage en Martinique le 22 mai de chaque année.
En effet, C’est le 22 mai 1848 que Victor Schoelcher a autorisé la signature du décret abolissant l’esclavage et la traite négrière dans les colonies.
Je vous invite à en apprendre plus sur le site internet de l’histoire de la Martinique.
