Paradise on earth in Martinique is almost a pleonasm. The Cocoa Beach Café, however, takes first place in the ranking of unforgettable places. Just to reach this restaurant you must agree to walk barefoot along the beautiful sandy beach to reach the wooden hut. This place, protected from the southern winds, is both joyful and soothing, and the staff welcome you to join them on a journey from the Caribbean to Asia. There's not a single false note here: quick-cooked crispy chicken spring rolls, BoBun of beef with rice noodles and five spices, bursting with flavour, and yellow curried cuttlefish and fragrant rice. The desserts are of the same calibre, simple and delicious, and, if you add the seductive wine list featuring old friends and cocktails, you won't think twice about taking the pathway to paradise.
