Martinique to Reevaluate Tourism Strategy By September

Travel Agent Central has an article posted about Martinique's new tourism strategy:

MARTINIQUE - During Travel Agent's participation in an ongoing press trip in Martinique, we had the privilege of sitting down Monday with Madeliene Jouye de Grandmaison, chairwoman of the Martinique Promotion Bureau. De Grandmaison, through a translator, told us the prime minister of France will conduct a meeting in September to reevaluate Martinique's tourism strategy, including plans to pursue direct flights from the U.S. and allowing locals to work on Sunday in order to keep shops open for cruise passengers.

Forbes Traveler highlights Martinique as a rum destination

From "10 FINE LIQUOR JOURNEYS" at Forbes Traveler:

To investigate boutique rum production, Curtis recommends Martinique, home to a half-dozen distilleries. On the sandy, picturesque island, distilleries don't mess with molasses. Instead, Martinique's grassy, nuanced rhum agricole is crafted from locally harvested, fresh-pressed sugarcane juice--often processed within an hour after leaving fields. "This means the distilleries are granted an Appellation d'Origine Controlee by the French government, which means they can claim wine-like terroir," Curtis says.

Affordable Caribbean: Martinique

The New York Times has a great series of articles and slide shows called "The Affordable Caribbean". One of things on the Time's list for Martinique are the beaches:

All the beaches on Martinque are free and public. For a rustic escape, go to Les Salines Beach, a mile-long golden crescent of sand on the island's southeast tip.
