Martinique is one of the destinations that is perfectly suited for a first trip with a baby. The activities that the island offers are very well suited to a family trip with young or even very young children.
The beach in particular and its wonderful fauna seduce all ages. By taking a few precautions related to the tropical climate, baby should enjoy his vacations in the sun as much as you do !
A trip to Martinique is inseparable from the beach. Playing in the sand, taking a dip, looking for shells, watching for sea turtles and other multicolored fish are certainly the activities in Martinique with baby that have the advantage of being both the easiest to set up and the ones that everyone will enjoy the most.
Baby will never be bored at the beach, which is full of activities by nature. You are free to choose different beaches to vary the pleasures during your stay on the island or to make a particular beach the headquarters of your trip. Generally speaking, the beaches in the south are to be preferred when looking for activities in Martinique with baby, because the sea is particularly calm there.
Many beaches are easily accessible, which you will appreciate if your baby is just starting to walk for example, and to avoid having to carry all your equipment for too long. The beaches of Sainte-Luce, and in particular the Gros Raisin cove, are ideal for taking baby to the water's edge.
However, the beach is not the only activity you can do in Martinique with a baby: don't hesitate to visit the gardens of the island, such as the garden of Balata or the domain of Captain Latouche. No doubt that the colors of the tropical flowers will amaze baby as much as his parents !
If Martinique and its miles of beach are particularly suitable for a stay with baby, a few precautions should be taken so that your vacation goes smoothly. If you are wondering when to go to Martinique with your baby, you should know that the island can be visited all year round and always offers a pleasant climate with temperatures that hardly ever rise above 32°C and rarely fall below 25°C. However, the sunshine is important and baby is fragile.
In addition to special baby sunscreen, you should also bring loose-fitting clothes that allow baby to breathe but protect him from the sun's rays. Glasses and hat are essential for all your activities in Martinique with baby.
This type of clothing is also very practical to limit mosquito bites, which are less present during the dry season (from December to April approximately). If you can decide when to go to Martinique with your baby, try to favor this period to limit this inconvenience. Always wear loose-fitting but thicker clothes at nightfall, when mosquitoes become particularly active. Don't hesitate to bring a small mosquito net in your luggage that fits in baby beds.
To discover all the beaches whose paradisiacal landscape makes you want to stop there, but also to make a trip to the more mountainous north of the island for a walk with baby in a sling, for example, renting a car adapted for babies will undoubtedly facilitate your travels.
For any reservation, Europcar offers you all the child safety elements to travel in complete serenity. Options that will be very useful in the car, such as the maxi-cosi or the child seat, but also in your rental accommodation, such as the umbrella bed or the stroller. These are all essential items when you want to travel to Martinique with your baby, but it's hard to fit them in your suitcase !
For even more comfort, you can opt for the queue-cutting service, which gives you priority at the agency counter, so that baby doesn't have to wait. You can then quickly retrieve your car and go to your accommodation, for a well-deserved break after your long trip !
