Martinique becomes a Sunsail destination

Release from Sunsail:

For travellers looking to soak up a charming mix of French flair and laid-back Caribbean vibes, Sunsail, the global yacht charter company that offers sailing holidays to first time sailors and experienced adventurers, welcomes Martinique to its expansive menu of top-rated holiday destinations.

Nicknamed the ‘culinary capital of the Caribbean’, Martinique is a cultural melting pot that effortlessly blends cosmopolitan appeal with local island charm. Bareboat and skippered charters are bookable now for April 2021 departures.

Located in the heart of the Lesser Antilles’ Windward Islands, the volcanic-formed island of Martinique is a mountainous region that is part of the French Republic, making it a mecca for French-Caribbean culture, maritime history and world-class sailing.

A yacht charter is the best way to explore and enjoy everything Martinique has to offer. From sheltered harbours, exotic snorkelling spots and hot springs, to guided hiking trails through lush rainforest, taking in the panoramic views from the peaks of Carbet and Mont Pelée. With an average year-round temperature of 24-30˚C and consistent trade winds blowing in from the northeast, sailors will enjoy a tropical climate and ideal cruising conditions. Anchorages and stopovers are easy to navigate with line-of-sight cruising, and plenty of mooring buoys available.

Prices for a one-week Martinique charter start from £646 per person (based on four people) departing 17 May 2021, onboard a Sunsail 41.1 premier yacht. Price includes yacht damage waiver and fuel. An optional skipper can be hired for £180 per day. Flights can be booked through Sunsail from £600 per person from London Heathrow via Paris.

Kate Staniforth, UK Senior Marketing Manager for Sunsail, says, “From hiking through exotic rainforests to bathing in natural hot springs, strolling along striking black-sand beaches to feasting on authentic French and Creole cuisine, this one-of-a-kind destination is worthy of every traveller’s bucket list. A Martinique yacht charter with Sunsail is your all-access pass to French-Caribbean paradise in its purest form. Book early to secure the yacht and holiday date of your choice.

“We are making sure our customers experience their next Sunsail adventure in a safe environment, and have made sure that we are able to adhere to all social distancing guidelines and have implemented stringent new health and safety procedures across all of our bases to protect our guests and staff. We hope by adapting our business to offer flexible booking options, our guests will feel comfortable and confident setting sail with us. We hope they will enjoy chartering our fantastic range of world-class yachts, with sailing experiences that are fun, exciting and safe.”

Following a 45-minute commute from the Martinique Aimea Cesaire International Airport, a Martinique yacht charter begins upon arrival to Sunsail’s base at the modern La Marina du Marin. This eco-friendly harbour features a wide range of services and amenities to accommodate visiting guests, including a supermarket, bakery, laundromat, post office, tobacco shop, Currency Exchange office, medical center, car rental, tourism office, ferry service to Saint Lucia, seven shops, eight restaurants, and two bar lounges.

To give clients peace of mind in uncertain times, Sunsail has updated its booking terms and conditions to offer flexible rebooking terms. The company has also introduced a comprehensive set of health and safety measures and protocols, which endeavour to make guests feel safe so they can travel with confidence and make the most of their time on the water.
