Diamond Rock

Diamond Rock Martinique

A veritable jewel anchored in the Caribbean, Diamond Rock has become a must-see for anyone who wants to bring beautiful pictures home from Martinique.

From atop its 175 m, (considered one of the finest diving sites of the island), it towers majestically across from the municipality named in its honor.

While today the rock is a refuge for sea birds, in the past it was a privileged witness to the clashes between the French and English over control of the Saint-Lucia Channel. For a period it was even commissioned by the British Royal Navy as the HMS Diamond Rock.

A habitat for the very last specimens of Lacépède's ground snake, access is today forbidden. But that does not prevent one from stopping at the lookout point at the foot of Larcher Hill to see it glisten as the sun moves across the sky.
