Today’s Caribbean Travel Photo spotlights on Diamond Rock or Rocher du Diamant, a 175-metre-high basalt island located south of Fort-de-France, the main port of the Caribbean island of Martinique. The uninhabited island is about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) from Pointe Diamant. The island gets its name from the reflections that its sides cast at certain hours of the day, which evoke images of a precious stone. It is notable for events during the Napoleonic Wars.
