Overview

Martinique was discovered in 1493 by Christopher Columbus is and interesting blend of French and Caribbean culture. The island is mountainous and features four separate pitons or volcanic mountain areas. The Piton Conil and Morne Jacob are in the north of the island and the Pitons du Carbet is a group of five extinct volcanoes covered by beautiful rainforest. The highest and most famous of the island's volcanic mountains is Mont Pelee, which erupted in 1902 and killed 30,000 people in the town of St Pierre, which was considered the Paris of the Lesser Antilles at the time. Although the island has a sad past, the jubilant population celebrates colorful festivals, the restaurants offer great French Creole gastronomy and there are multitudes of beautiful sandy beaches.
