Martinique (2of2): locals and their activities

Mainly living off from tourism, street shopping and fishing, locals are so easy and nice to talk to !

Most of the Martinique population is made by martinicans – Blacks and mulattos, descendants of the slaves delivered from Africa, and also natives of the Southern India, Chinese and Italians. Martinique locals are very hospitable and cordial persons, they welcome the guests of the island with pleasure, here each day is a holiday.

The main sources of the income here, which feed many families of the island, certainly is a fishing and production of the boats that isn’t surprising at all, taking in attention that fact that Martinique is surrounded from all sides by water

The second important source of the income is surely tourism. The people from all around the world comes here to enjoy paradisiacal landscapes, to relax on the beach, sing, to fish, to surf, to drink shake, to scooter etc.

How do they say ? “Not the place adornes the person, but the person adornes the place where he/she is”… Martinique is ideal from this point of view 🙂
Here everything is in harmony – beautiful happy people in combination with awesome landscapes and nature. Real paradise! Come here!
