Not only is Martinique known for being the flower island, this french- speaking Caribbean island is home of the best Rums in the region.
With an area of 436 square miles and a population of approximately 390,000 inhabitants, the island is located in the lesser antilles between the islands of Dominica in the north and St Lucia in the South.
This French oasis offers a wide range of landscapes, from the humid and tropical forest up north and the black-sand beaches to the dry and hot climate in the south with its large sandy crystal blue-wwater beaches .
You can also climb up on top of the 4,000 foot Mont Pelée. Still active, this volcano errupted in 1902, killing almost all of the residents of the city of St Pierre.
