Martinique is an island in the eastern Caribbean Sea, with a land area of 1,128 km2 (436 sq mi). Like Guadeloupe, it is an overseas region of France, consisting of a single overseas department. The first European to encounter the island was Christopher Columbus in 1502.  

Its official language is French, although many of its inhabitants also speak Antillean Creole. Often referred to as the ‘Island of Flowers’, here you can find a wealth of colourful flowering plants, lots of green vegetation and plenty of rainfall. Rich emerald rainforests cover the mountain slopes in the interior of the island, with red hibiscus, bougainvillea, alamanda trees, frangipani, balsam and acacia found all over as well.
