Almost everyone has a different idea of paradise, but the majority probably imagines a place with crystal waters and almost silken sandy beaches that stretch on for miles. These breathtaking treasures can actually be found all around the world. Two such pearls are the exotic commune of Les Trois Ilets and happening hot spot Pointe du Bout of the Martinique overseas department of France.
Located on a peninsula in the northern end of the island, Les Trois Ilets is one of Martinique's most popular tourist attractions. There are those exquisite beaches, lush tropical landscape to hike through, mind (and taste bud) blowing cuisine, and Josephine Bonaparte. Take in the quaintness of this luminous community while touring what is believed to be the birth home of Napoleon's beloved first wife. The residence was carefully restored and converted into a museum to honor the beautiful empress. History enthusiasts will especially enjoy the personal items that once belonged to Josephine, such as invitations to various social events in Paris and a love letter from her husband.
A contrast to the village feel of Les Trois Ilets, sassy twin sister Pointe du Bout is like having the best of both vacation worlds at one's fingertips. It is only a short ferry ride away to Martinique's resort capital, which can be viewed in all its glory from a car hire and all around play ground for vacationers looking to jazz up their night after a mellow afternoon of sun bathing. Four of the largest and most glamorous resorts on the island of Martinique planted their roots in Pointe du Bout, most likely for closer access to the white sand and sparkling water that make these beaches such a widespread attraction. Throw in a first class marina, beautifully designed gardens, and a nearby casino and it is easy to see why this tip of the peninsula is so popular.
