Welcome to Martinique Nature
This website celebrates everything and anything related to Martinique island
A very beautiful Island
It is a very beautiful island and a lot of travelers from all over the world have visited this place. It is not as popular as many other remote tropical locations, but there is something distinctive, charming and all too unforgettable about this historic island.
One reason people are drawn to it is its remoteness which draws our romantic side. It’s easy to figure that out. For example, if you’re traveling to Paris, you would quickly realize that you’re not the first person to think of visiting the city of lights the moment you get there. This is a very romantic city. A lot of newlyweds from all over the world spend their honeymoon there, people are bringing their families there, it’s like an obligatory and customary stop when going to France. It’s common to see people taking selfies and all sorts of shots like portraying themselves pushing against the tower or putting it in the palm of their hands when you walk around the base of the Eiffel Tower.
As the old saying goes ‘familiarity’ breeds contempt. If you are going to be visiting a place everyone you know has visited, it is not new territory. There is no appeal left. Sure, it might have a great reputation but there is something lost in translation. This is what is so awesome about martinique. It truly is off the beaten path. And even if people have visited this place, there are many different spots on the island. It offers many different angles. You can definitely position the places you check out in a different way.
There is something to be said about new places and new experiences. These are what you get when you come to our island. The experience enables you to truly feel you are traveling to some place special. You don’t get the impression that you are looking at a postcard that’s been passed around for so long or you are staring into an Instagram photo that tons of people all over the world has liked. Instead, you feel like you are experiencing something that is uniquely yours.
That is cute and awesome, but you probably would think that there’s more to your Paris vacation than simply doing what every other tourist is doing. This is precisely the kind of travel value that Martinique and other remote islands offer. You would get to come up with some profound insights about your life, about the good life and about living in general and you get to travel properly.
The problem with going to tourist hotspots like the Pyramids of Egypt, Machu Picchu in South America, Bangkok, Thailand, the Colosseum in Rome and the Eiffel Tower in Paris is that you fall into a common tourist trap. The tourist trap that we talk about here is not about buying of all sorts of things commemorating your visit such as trinkets, key chain, refrigerator magnet and realize the lie when you see the phrase boldly and clearly embodied: “Made in China”. The tourist trap that I’m talking about has something to do with imagination of all sorts of things about a distant place and then going there only to find out that it doesn’t fit your preconceptions.
At this point, you have two options: you can choose to enjoy things based on what you actually see and experience or insist to conform to your pre-existing idea. This is called tourist mindset or a postcard mindset. You expect these exotic places to possess all these fantasy ideas you have about that place. You’re not going to a place that has its own agenda but in actuality, you are going to that place to vindicate, justify, or otherwise corroborate the ideas you already have about that place.
Even if it does not match your ideas as far as local geography, culture and history are concerned, but none of that matters to you. You were there to validate what you think you already know. This happens all the time, people think this way when it comes to travelling. Instead of real travel, they are tourists that are looking for glorified 3D versions of the postcards they have already in mind.
The great thing about remote places like Martinique, they are essentially immune to that stuff. Why? This place is really remote and the stuff that you hear about online are usually from people who do not have this postcard mindset. So if you are looking for a raw, unvarnished and closer to the truth kind of experience, then you might want to visit really remote vacation destinations like Martnique Island.
It has many areas that are so raw, undeveloped and wild, this may sound a bit dangerous, but it actually opens a tremendous opportunity. Instead of you always going to different places to validate what you think you already know, you are forced to come to your senses and confront reality based on its own terms. And that might be just the amazing, reinvigorating and reviving experience you need to start looking at the rest of your life with the fresh set of eyes.
Don't be surprised!
Don’t be surprised if you come back home feeling more energized and you are ready and eager to live fully, to step past the predictable, the routine and the boring. That’s awesome, right? That’s exactly the kind of personal change that travelling to places like Martinique Island can help bring into your life.
We have many visitors email us telling us of the amazing ‘reboot’ they experienced when they visited our island. Some say that their lives have never been the same again. It really all boils down to getting a new fresh set of eyes. You may be dealing with the old, the routine, the familiar but if you change your mindset, everything is new again. Everything can be fresh, exciting, and engaging. And all you need is a change in space. Never underestimate the power of travel to change you both within and without.
