Martinique is nicknamed "the island of flowers". Indeed, the island is full of floral species that are most often used for ornamental purposes. By berthing the island on June 15, 1502, Christopher Columbus reportedly said, "It is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, so I can not tire my eyes of contemplating such greenery." Even today, the island has preserved its natural environment and its particular flowers that you will find from north to south of the island. Just a word "contemplate"!
