Martinique landforms

Martinique is mountainous and dominated by a single (active) volcano, Mt. Pelee; it stands at 4,583 ft. (1,397m).

The island's rugged terrain slopes to the indented coastline of bay and coves, and there's very little lowland to be found.

Tropical rain forests and mangrove swamps cover much of the coastal areas. A few small rivers drain the mountains, with the Lezarde river the most significant.
