There was no accurate history when the island got to discover. Following ancient narration, St. Martin was identified by a subgroup of Arawaks about 3,500 years ago. Since then, with all the changes years after years finally, in the year 1900, the British Geographic Department declared it as a part of British-India.
The island is a total area of 8 square kilometers. Despite this small boundary, the breathtaking view is worth it.
The early history says the name of the island had named after a Christian saint "Martin." But according to other research, they claimed the island to be named after the district administrator "Martin" of that time as there is no clue about any Christian people or church's existence there. The place is also known by "Narikel Zinzira." The Arab named it earlier, as the people living there used to produce lots of coconut trees due to lack of drinking water.
