Spectacular landscapes of Martinique Island

There is nothing like escaping the cold weather in Montreal in Winter and head off to the south. When I received the invitation to join a press trip in Martinique, it was the perfect opportunity to discover one of the two french islands of the Caribbean sea. There is nothing like a road trip to discover a country and this one was promising to be exciting.

So, sit down and relax and enjoy those beautiful landscapes .

Saint Pierre

Located on the northern part of the Island, the city was known as the  “the Paris of the Caribbean” in the 1800s, the city was completely destroyed in 1902 by the volcanic eruption of the Mount Pelé. Nowadays, the city hosts a museum of History.

Le Rocher du Diamant – Diamond Rock

Diamond Rock (Rocher du Diamant) is a 175 m high basalt island located south of Fort-de-France, the main port of the Caribbean island of Martinique. The uninhabited island is about 3 kilometers from Pointe Diamant. The island gets its name from the reflections that its sides cast at certain hours of the day, which evoke images of a precious stone
