Butterfly Garden Martinique
Martinique, Le Carbet

The Butterfly Garden of Martinique is located on the northwest coast of the island, in the town of Le Carbé, in the historic Latouche district. Butterfly Garden covers an area of 4000 square meters. In a lush tropical garden, hundreds of species of exotic plants grow - coconut palm, calabash tree, cocoa tree, tree ferns, creepers, calotropis, high etlingera (porcelain rose), ixora, galanga alpine and others. Among the lush vegetation flutter the main inhabitants of the garden - butterflies. There are about 40 species. During a garden tour, visitors will be told about the life cycle of butterflies, about the endemic species of these insects, and will also be “introduced” to the migratory butterfly Monarch (Danaida monarch), which, with the onset of cold weather, leaves its native places in North America and travels south, overcoming to 4000 kilometers. An adult (adult) lives for about two months, the duration of the Monarch butterfly’s flight is much longer than its life, the fourth generation of insects that appeared during the migration reaches their destination. Martinique is one of the “transshipment” places on the long way of the Danaida monarch; in the garden you can see caterpillars, pupae and adult butterflies, who, having become stronger, continue the path of their parents. A walk through the garden will bring visitors great pleasure, it is equipped with a hiking trail that leads to the ruins of the St. Martine artillery battery, built in the 17th century (the walk takes no more than half an hour). It offers beautiful panoramic views of the Gulf of Saint-Pierre and the Pele volcano. In the very center of the garden is the green Theater Theater de Verdure - a favorite place for local artists, poets and musicians. The theater hosts exhibitions of paintings, literary evenings and concerts.
