The Amerindians originally called Martinique “Madinina,” island of the flowers. Indeed it is. Except for the dry lands of the Ste.-Anne Peninsula, flowers are just about everywhere on the 425-square-mile island. You can hardly walk or look anywhere without seeing bromeliads, orchids, anthuriums, heliconias, bougainvillea, poinsettias, roses, hibiscus, and the impressive porcelain rose. Most visitors come from France and the European continent, but increasing numbers of North Americans are discovering the island. It is a place where you can enjoy the comforts of a modern hotel, feast on Creole cooking and French pastries, purchase the latest Parisian fashions, and then escape, within minutes, to a deep, lush rain forest, a bubbling hot spring, or an isolated beach. This eTrail includes 41 walks on Martinique.
